I have a VPC that I would like to host natively. Are there conversion tools available to convert an existing VPC image to something I can boot to?

It is a bit difficult, but if you're running the Windows 7 RC or beta you can boot directly from the VPC 2007 images.

From the comments, it appears that some people are still having problems configuring it. I'll try this tomorrow. –  Brian Jul 22 '09 at 16:22

I think your best best is to create an image of the virtual PC with something like Ghost and then restore that on the real PC. It will have to go through a whole round of driver installation, but it should work in principle.
