how to create disk image of entire running windows operating system in linux or windows
I want to create iso disk image of entire running windows vista os aong with installed applications.
This os is installed on a disk which I can configure to be not the boot disk and let the other disk be the boot disk on which I have my main os fedora 13. In fedora I can see this disk mounted as /media/something. Please tell how do I create such a disk image of windows vista from fedora?
Please do not recommend to use the original windows vista dvd from ms$ to create os from as huge amount of effort has gone into setting up all the applications and upgrade to service pack 2.
This is dell oem version of windows vista but since I am setting it up as virtual os in exactly same machine for which it is licensed so this should not cause activation problem.
The purpose of this disk image to use that as source to set up a new guest os using virtulization software like virtualbox. If not possible in linux then how to do withing the same running windows of which a disk image needs to be created. I think they also call snapshot of the running os at a given instant of time.
