Virtual machine to physical?

Hi, I have a windows 7 machine and I am using VMware to create a vm of windows 8 pro x64. I finally wen out and purchased me a 120 GB SSD. and I was wondering if It was possible to take my VM machine and create it into a physical machine onto my SSD? anyone have any ideas on how I would do that with VMware? thanks

I use VMware Workstation 8 by the way

Yep, pretty easy.

Attach a clonezilla disk to the VM.
Make an image of the VM and store it on your preferred external media (External HDD, DVD's, etc).
Restore the image to the physical disk using clonezilla.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - Service Pack 1

Yes, you can try this what Cancerous said...
But before this - do this tutorial on your VM : Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer

That will help you to have working OS outside VM...
