Is it possible to have a Virtual Machine AND a Dual Boot Windows OS alongside Ubuntu?

Currently, I'm in Ubuntu. I prefer it over Windows, but unfortunately, I need to use Windows from time to time. Is it possible to install Windows on a physical disk, and then have the option to either boot into it during startup or just connect in Ubuntu, either via remote control or virtualization?

You can have a dualboot system, and run the Windows partition in a VM, consult this thread.

You may not use remote control (RDP/VNC) without somehow booting the Windows partition in a VM, so the remote control is kind of superflous.
