Using VMware Workstation, can I "clone" a real machine into a virtual machine ?
Posted on 2006-07-05
I have an old laptop (Win XP Pro) with a 30 GB hard disk. I would like to "clone" that into a VM on my new laptop, which is a dual-processor with a 100 GB disk and plenty of horsepower.
Hopefully I should be able to use the VM on the new laptop just as if it were my old laptop, with nothing more than a backup-restore, without having to reinstall any applications or tweak the registry.
Could you give me step by step instuctions on how to do this transfer?
Thanks for your help
