Unix dd command and image creation
[Mar 11, 2010] g4u. this is bit-by-bit copying so NTFS is supported. It works best with ... usefull program written in C which is called dd_rescue, it roughly act as the dd linux ...
dd makes a file that is an (hopefully) exact file version of the bits that are on a drive. It has every bit from start to finish. So, some programs can use that file just as if it were the original drive.
Second is the p2v. There are many out there. They can perform little to every task needed to take your system and recreate it in some VM application form.
If you want you could even create a vm that uses the actual drive but again any sort of hardware to vm means the MS operating system will not like it. You may have to convert or repair or add in drivers first. This is where the converter come in. They can repair "some" versions of the OS. NOT 98 though, pretty sure, you'd have to fix it yourself.
Thank All Of You for this information.
