Boot TIB to Virtual Box

I have a tib image. I would like to practise and actully export it to .gho. I figured I could boot the image into a virtual PC . If there is a software that can change tib to gho or vice versa that would be amazing. But from my research it doesn't exist.

I really need a play by play.

I am sure others would benefit from this . If I ever get something I will post it.

If you have a tib image, which is an Acronis image.

The first method would be to restore to a computer or virtual computer, using Acronis Bare Metal, or Universal Restore, and then creating a new image using Symantec Ghost.

Insert the Acronis Recovery CDROM, restore tib image with universal restore option enabled.

I really need a play by play. I have been in IT for 15 years. Once I get it once I become pretty good. But I tried to boot the CD via the Oracle Cd no dice. It seems way to complicated. I may just use Acronis just to use the image.

If any app would exist that would be great. Though I was wondering if VMware's import tool would be able to do it.

So it's a no TIB can't be easily changed to GHO.
