I'm trying to convert a physicial workstation to a VM workstation without having to reinstall the entire platform.  I thought there was a tool VM-converter however, I can't even install it.  does anyone know what I need to do in order to convert a physical box to a virtual one?  It's a windows box.  Also and most importantly will it upset the physical boxes ability to work until I have it set up?
