I’m planning to run WHS on a VM inside the HTPC running on Virtual PC on Windows 7.
At http://www.wegotserved.com they suggest to run windows 7 inside WHS , but I think the HTPC require a lot more power than WHS so I prefer to set it up the other way.

I also have a Netgear Stora, so I’m not even so sure I want to install WHS.

The idea was to partition the HDD in 3 parts

15% for the Windows 7 partition
15% for WHS Virtual Machine disk (in a separate partition)
70% storage

Now, the only thing I need to know is if it’s possible to map the 3rd partition as a disk on WHS VM
