Devirtualize a server on Hyper-v

I have a MS Windows 2008 R2 Server virtualized on a similar machine.  I'd like to devirtualize the server and put it on a physical box.  Does someone have a way of doing this?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

make a backup of the server, and then recover it onto the new one.

And that will work if the hard drives aren't exactly the same size?

Thanks for the info.  When I try to restore the image on the new server, I do not get the option of the local disks.  Any ideas?
