I used SCVMM 2012 but it's an overkill, I sued disk2vhd but it has limitations. It creates only dynamic disks and I cannot specify to create separate VHDs for each volume even if it's on the same disk. Unless I run separate conversion for each volume but then I end up with a raw image of the other volume in each partition.

Also, when I then try to use VHDresier tool ( it says it's an invalid VHD file and I can't easilu shrink it and convert to fixed disk

Any suggestions would be apreciated
