I have a ThinkPad running Windows 7 Enterprise with a BitLocker encrypted drive. I would like to clone or somehow convert this physical machine into a virtual machine that I can with either VMWare Fusion 5 or Parallels Desktop 8 on OS X.

Is this even possible given the BitLocker encryption?

Why not disable BitLocker and be done with it? –  John Gardeniers Oct 27 '12 at 0:07

VMware vCenter Converter should be able to convert it. You may need to disable BitLocker, decrypting the entire drive, first, since BitLocker is not supported within virtual machines.
