When you give qemu-kvm a partition to use as disk for a guest, it

You may be able to do what you want by attaching a whole disk to the
guest, instead of just the partition.
I've often thought that it should be possible to cook something up with
device manager -- essentially creating a "wrapper" that provides a MBR,
etc. around a Windows logical volume or partition. Might be a fun
project for someone.
Caveat 2: You of course already know this, but Windows is not
to be run in this configuration (same installation runs physical as well
as virtual), so you may run into unexpected issues, even if you get it
The biggest issue I would expect would be constant requests to
"reactivate" the Windows VM/system.
