Create Virtual Machine/VHD of running OS on physical machine

Didn’t you always want a simple, inexpensive (probably FREE) utility that could let you convert your running OS on the physical machine into a Virtual Machine that could be hosted on any Hyper-V server? So finally the wait is over.

Disk2vhd, developed by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell, is a utility that creates VHD (Virtual Hard Disk – Microsoft’s Virtual Machine disk format) versions of physical disks for use in Microsoft Virtual PC or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs). The difference between Disk2vhd and other physical-to-virtual tools is that you can run Disk2vhd on a system that’s online. Disk2vhd uses Windows’ Volume Snapshot capability, introduced in Windows XP, to create consistent point-in-time snapshots of the volumes you want to include in a conversion. You can even have Disk2vhd create the VHDs on local volumes, even ones being converted (though performance is better when the VHD is on a disk different than ones being converted).

Although, this ability of conversion is also given by SCVMM, except that not all users and administrators do not have SCVMM installed and supported in their  organizations. So Disk2vhd provides an inexpensive solution.

Download it free and check how it works.
