We can use this:

I have the images locally and I have confirmed with Richard Fontana (RH lawyer) that they can be used for dual-boot testing purposes (I assume this is essentially the same use case as our Fedora QA use case). The only problem is that KVM support needs to be verified (according to [1] we might need Fedora 18), or we need to use VirtualBox. I quickly tried KVM and the Windows installer doesn't boot, but maybe it just needs some tweaking.
