Not sure exactly what you mean, you are asking is a clean install is possible from a virtual drive, the answer is yes, and no. If you are doing a clean install on a secondary partition then yes, but if you are talking about a format and install, then well no, you will loose your partition in the format.... Hope this helps, I am kinda average at the tech world.
