In the past there have been some free and easy to use tools for converting a physical machines to Vmware vmdk disks but I haven’t found any if you want to create a vhd. Of course you can use System Center Virtual Machine Manager but that is not always what you have i mind. Some weeks ago Microsoft released a small tool that do just this.

  1. Download the Disk2vhd from Microsoft (you can even run it directly from from Live.Sysinternals.com)
  2. Start the machine you want to convert (Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, and higher, including x64 systems)
  3. Copy the tool to the machine and follow the wizard
