    Is it possible to convert VMWare virtual machines for use by VPC?

    Hi Mark,

    I'm new here and I was also looking for VPC help but your question caught my
    attention. A possible solution to migrating from VMware to VPC would be to
    obtain the drivers for VPC's virtual hardware and install them into your
    VMware's virtual machine. A backup could be made with Symantec's disk imaging
    software or any other imaging software which gets the job done. To finalize
    the migration you would then use the image to "restore" (install) the VM into
    VPC. Make sure you go into system properties and control panel to reconfigure
    any drivers and "hardware conflicts".

    The above process is purely theoretical (spontaneous). I have not tested the
    process so I'm not aware of the problems you may have and I would suggest
    doing a backup if your information is of value to you. Hope this helps!

    There is a Virtual Server migration kit which can help move a physical
    server to a VM so I guess it should also work for a VMware VM to VPC
    VM.

    The biggest thing is to remove the VMWare Tools BEFORE you move the
    VM.
