We have just finished cloning the operating systems on our server. One of the images is a ghost image containing Windows XP. The other image is a Clonezilla image containing both Windows XP and Fedora being dual-booted. Our intention is to install both operating systems into 2 virtual machines in VMware ESXi from those images. I do realize that we may only be able to use the ghost image and not the clonezilla image.
I have read from numerous other sources that you cannot use a ghost image in ESXi. I do know there is a converter in vSphere, but there's no clear indication if it can do ghost images.
What is the best method to install the cloned images of the operating systems into the virtual machines? Is there a converter that can change the images into a ESXi-useable image so that a fresh reinstallation is not necessary?
Thanks in advance.
