Convert Xen VM to Physcial

HI

I have a Xen PV template (SolusVM) which has everything I need to install. To create a VM I use that template and everything is ready.
But for a specific client I need everything in a Physical machine. Is there a way I can use that VM template and everything is installed/copied to my physical machine without destroying physical machine's OS. Both VM template and Physcial machine have CentOS 6.6 64bit.

What you want to copy?

Some files or some installed software. You can copy most directories from a running system to any other system on a network.

> What you want to copy?

The VM is having Oracle 11G installed which is the most important and time consuming. It doesn't work simply by copying its directories.

Well then spin a VM from a template and then use SSH etc to login remotely.
