One can always use an emulator like program (e.g. virtualbox, qemu, etc) to run a separate system, either for a dos box or a nearer to bare metal affair.

I've often considered using VirtualBox as a platform to play with things that are either 'hard' under an existing operating system, or prone to crashing things during R&D.
