Is it practical to make a virtual machine from a Vista PC?
Posted on 2014-03-26
A client has a Windows Vista laptop which has a dead screen and a dying keyboard. The installation of Vista itself is fine, and has some difficult-to-replicate software running on it.
How practical would it be to take the hard drive, copy it and convert THAT Vista installation to run on any Windows PC as a virtual machine?
What kind of virtual machine and software should we use? Paid for or free options considered, that it works is most important.
