Eh Yo! I got a queshion!
Sorry really wanted to type that.
I have a bare metal install of win 8.1 at the moment and it is giving me issues along with the impending forced Win10 update I am wondering can I take my current install and turn it into a VM.
In my mind I want to install another drive that linux is installed on and leave my windows disks as they are, then set up a VM under linux and more or less say Here these disks have windows on them, make them run in your VM. Is such a thing possible or is it far easier just setting up linux and then creating a VM oldschool.
Yup, this exists. Check out my comment here on this exact question
Damn, thanks. Not I have to figure out what the problem with the current install is.
One thing though. My current Win install is over three disks.
That'll be an issue I think. I don't know if this tool is capable of that, its meant just for a single disk if I'm not mistaken.
If possible I think you'd need to condense it down to just a disk and then image it, you can then restore your redirections and whatnot back to the other drive after? Then again I don't know if that'll be possible as I don't know what you've done
