Hi

You have a vmdk?? Or a VM in your laptop that you want to move to your desktop??

If so, just copy from one side to another, and run on the VMware in your desktop

Jail

Not sure what you mean.  Do you want to do a V2P from the VM to your Desktop?

Thanks Jail,

No,  I need a  native installation and Install the ISO file  (from VMware) without of  VMware .
I don´t need a copy - paste  vmdk file and use a VM
thanks

I think what you're wanting is a way to do a V2P. See this VMware KB:
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1002498, which will lead you to a whitepaper on how to do so. You'll need to create an image of your VM, basically, using something like Acronis True Image or Symantec B/U Exec Sys Restore, then put that on your hardware. There is no real easy way necessarily to accomplish a V2P...meaning, no simple conversion tool.
