I'm not an expert but it seems that a frame buffer driver
that can do what your VGA console does should not be
very hard to write.
The same console can be used for X server as well with
the frame buffer driver. At the begining it can be
probably unaccelerated.

    There is allready a virtual frame buffer in the kernel
    implemented as a memory device. It is just a matter of
    displayng the content in a window in windows. I'm not sure
    about keyboard and mouse input but that can be probably
    resolved
