You can image the virtual environment with Ghost or Clonezilla (free) and then restore that image to your host.

acronis will work.  i have done it personally

i used hyper v
create a new virtual machine
took a hard drive offline(i had extra drive that wasnt in use)
mounted it to the virtual machine
started the vm and booted to acronis(with universal restore)
created a image of the hd and place the image on the other hd
turned off vm

bring the hd back online
shared the folder where backup.tib is located \\server\backup\backup.tib
on the physical machine ran acronis with univeral restore and pointed to the \\server\backup\backup.tib

installed drivers.  

and now its backonline

The image is already in VHD format (using Disk2VHD) i cannot use acronic on the physical server to create the image becoz its crash my server (arconis dont have a solution for that crash).
Again the solution that im looking for is to take the VHD i already made and us it ro restore to the physical machine (any machine for that matter).

do you need to restore OS? Or its only a vhd that contains data?

In that case, consider using VHD to create a VM and Reinstall your Physical Serveer then Migrate your Data/Services to the Physical Server.
