How to convert a Server 2008 R2 physical server installation into a vhdx file so I can add this file to another box running hyper V

I currently have a physical server that is running Server 2008 R2. I am deploying a new server using Server 2012 R2. I am using Hyper V on this new server and already have one virtual server running on it. I want to convert this server 2008  r2 server into a vhdx file so that I can add this virtual file into the server 2012 R2 server that is already running Hyper V so that I have both of these virtual machines running on this one physical server.

How do I go about doing this.

Thank you for your help.
