How to install Windows Server 2008 R2 on Windows 7 HP using virtual?

Hi, I have a windows 7 home premium laptop (64bit) and wanted to install SQL server 2008 R2 and Visual studio 2010 enterprise, Sharepoint 2010 enterprise editions using some virtual server or virtual pc. As far I know, we cannt directly install the so mentioned in windows 7 home edition. Is is possible to install these softwares on a virtual server? if so, what type of virtual software and version I need to install on my laptop? is there any way to install these 3 softwares on my laptop? please help.

Thanks,
Arun.K.S

You might try install the virtual PC software and then creating a virtual drive, then install the OS that you wish to.
Microsoft's free virtual xp won't install on home products but virtual pc will as long as your bios supports virtualization.

You'll need a virtual machine app, like VirtualBox, VMWare, etc, and then you'll need a server OS to install in the VM. Once you do this, you can install and test the mentioned software. You don't have system specs filled in, but you'll want a multi-core processor with plenty of memory.
