Disk2vhd,convert my PC to Hyper-V Virtual Machine
I've just bought a machine running Windows 7 x64 Professional. I want to use this to run my old XP x32 installation as a virtual machine using Virtual PC.
My plan is to create images of the 2 current XP drives using Disk2vhd. Then install these drive images in an XP virtual machine.
- Should this work?
- Will I need to activate XP on the virtual machine?
- Will 1 GB be enough to run the virtual machine (16 GB available on host)?
- Are there any other pitfalls of which I need to be aware?
