    You can get VMWare Workstation for relatively cheap...or try Virtual PC downloadable from here.

    @Cristingarnet, I think it will not harmful for ur laptop. If u have enough RAM and fast cpu speed (hope so) then u may continue ur work as usual. Just take care about viruses. Install good Anti-Virus and configure firewall correctly. Enjoy !

    Cristingarnet, is there some feature you have in the starter edition that is not present in the ultimate edition ? Although your machine will certainly work with this dual boot configuration, my recommendation would be to have these two OSes only if you really need them both.
