Using qcow2/img virtual storage outside of vm environment

Is it possible to use a .qcow2 or .img file in a normal grub boot process? (eg. have a windows 10 VM within Manjaro but be possible to boot into it from directly from hardware with the grub install that i use to boot Manjaro)


It’s an interesting idea but given that (AFAIK) the KVM stuff needed to run .qcow2 files is loaded after grub I’m not sure if this would be possible. I think it’s a bit like wanting to make a scrambled egg before the hen has layed it
