Is it possible to image a Windows machine and then create a virtual machine in either Fusion or Parallels using that image? I am giving up my old work laptop with windows 7 installed and i am moving the windows 7 license to my macbook pro to be virtualized. I was just going to do install anyway but this capability would make my decision to go with Fusion or Parallels.

Parallels has Parallels Transporter and VMWare Fusion has a migration assistant. I've used Transporter; it works fine. I've never used the VMWare option.
