If you use a qcow2 or raw format file, a guest's virtual drive doesn't need
a special type of partition. The defaults will place it on your /var/...
There's nothing wrong with that, so no need to partition the hard drive in a
special way. I don't use LVM because I find it harder to work with when you
have to boot some recovery and off-line backup utils. (like clonezilla)
If the guest is going to use its virtual drive very heavily, don't expect
any kind of performance using just one drive.
