Converting old Win2k Professional PC to VM image
Posted on 2011-09-08
I have an old Windows 2000 Professional PC with one particular app installed on it that we need to run every few months. It can't be installed on a later version of Windows. I am trying to reduce the number of old machines in the office so would like to convert it to a VM. I have just tried running the latest version of the standalone converter on it and it says that XP is the earliest OS now supported.
I believe earlier versions of the converter would work with WIn2k - can anyone suggest how I get hold of a copy, and also provide a procedure for converting the box? I have read quite a number of posts in various places (almost all for Server 2000) which seem to imply that it can be a tricky process.
