I am running Vmware ESX 3.5 on a server. I would like to be able to create numerous Windows 2008 Server guests on this ESX server for various applications tests, trash them, and then rebuild the guests.

I have so far created a virtual Windows 2008 Server guest on this server using the Windows 2008 CD, which was long and tiresome.

I haven't installed any apps on this guest yet, it is just the base image. Is there anyway I can make a copy of this image to create other guests with, without having to go through using the Windows 2008 installation again?

Hope someone can help!
