Hello experts.
I have a virtual machine containing a very complex program to setup and configure (sources are not available too) that i want to convert it to physical.
I tried lots of things but none worked as expected:
- windows backup hangs
- symantec besr, even if it is a bare metal operation, stops at 73%, even after replacing hard disk with a new one
- using clonezilla by adding the physical hard disk as additional hard disk to the virtual machine and using clonezilla. the copy operation succeeded with no error but when placing hard disk in the physical machine, it fails to start
I would like to know if there's an effective way or software  that i should use
Thank you in advance
