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

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.

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