Windows 7
vmware and an image file

Hello Guys,

I have a question.

Here is my hardware
#1 Primary drive - 300 gigs
#2 Secondary drive - 1 tera byte

I installed and booted to #2 and installed windows 7 64 bit and vmware

I would like to make an image of drive #1 and added it under Vmware

What software do you guys recommend to create an iso to use under vmware?

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
I use Acronis -- but I think you can download the vmware image converter which will create a working OS to a Virtual Disk.

Download from vmware site.
