Why so complicated?  As long as you don't package Hardware-Drivers /
Kernel-Packages, you should be able to just work fine with chroot.

Mount the other operating systems partition somewhere, and just run
"chroot /mnt/my/other/linux/system", and voila!  There you are.

You might want to take a look at dchroot, to use it with a bit more

No need to reboot, no need for virtual machines.

Yours sincerely,
