I have a physical Windows 2008 Server, I would like to make it as a VM on a host running Windows 2012 Server Hyper-V role.
I used ShadowProtect to make an image backup for each of the two partitions on Windows 2008 server and saved them on a USB hard drive.
My plan is to restore the image to the VM but I think a VM will not recognize a USB hard drive therefore the images on the USB hard drive will not be accessible by the VM
So what should I do then?

Please help!

Many thanks !
