Let me see if I understood your problem statement fully/correctly:

1. You have a system with Windows 7 (say sda1) and Centos 6.3 (say sda2)
2. You are booted into CentOS 6.3  and running a Win XP guest in a VM (LKVM?)
3. Now you want to access /dev/sda1 (NTFS) from within the Win XP VM

How are you starting the VM?  CLI or virt-manager.
