I bought a new machine which cam pre installed with Windows 7. My old machine was working in XP with no problems. I managed to move all my data to the new machine with no problems mentioned. My problem is i am not sure when i will need my old machine to retrieve a possible configuration or to run an application which failed to run in Windows 7. My idea was to backup the  old windows XP machine to ISO in a removable drive and then to boot in the new machine using the VMware.

Any one can help to provide a solution to boot XP to ISO?
