  • Thread-topic: Physical Windows HDD Install to Xen DomU Disk Image



I have tried a number of methods found through various sites on the Internet to get a physical windows install converted to a Xen DomU disk image.  Such as:


1.       DomU disk image creation (formatted as ntfs).  We then mounted the disk image (loop) and directly copied the physical mount image data to the disk image.

2.       Qemu-img convert from physical HDD to VHD.

3.       XenConvert (from Citrix) to VHD


So far I have not had luck in getting any of these to produce a good copy.  Does anyone have any good references for this problem?  Possibly a method that works time and time again?


Please let me know if you have any questions?
