Hi,
 

  P2V can be done by System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
  Or by Vmware converter but you'll have to convert resulting vmdk into vhd format.

For Hyper-V you would need to use VMM as already said, but there are also some free tools: http://techycentral.com/2009/10/19/free-physical-to-virtual-disk2vhdp2v-tool-for-microsoft-virtual-pc-or-hyper-v/

Obviously always make sure you have a full backup before you do these sorts of tasks.  You could also try the Symantec product

Specifically you probably need Disk 2 VHD:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/ee656415
