I forgot to tell you that if you put original Os in Vbox or Vm it won't update.
M$ only allows you to put a purchased full version of wins in VM.

VBox works well on my AMD machine is Kvm and qemu better for my hardware. Machine is listed in my signature.

Clonezilla took over 10hours to copy the image onto VirtualBox VM...sda2(C: Drive) had 63.5GB of data...and after all that Vista isnt booting it keeps coming to the "Windows Error Recovery Screen", i did try running system restore after selecting "Launch Startup Repair", but that just runs for a while and brings me back to the same "Windows Error Recovery Screen" after a reboot.
I don't know if its an issue with the image, or its something to do with Vista!!! any ideas?

I am just trying to test if the image works, so i'll delete it once it does...all legit.
jefro: how do you use QEMU to test images, any links for tutorials for it would be helpful.

Edit: Theres a blue screen before the Vista VM reboots, but it doesn't stay on, it just flashes...says something about the computer being shut down to prevent damage or something...

Vista not booting is most probably coz some settings got messed up while i was booting it in VirtualBox, the laptop's display has been replaced...guys thanks a lot for helping out.

I simply use qemu from windows but should work in linux too. In windows I put the hard drive image as -hda and boot it.


In normal cases you can't move a MS product. You can try to "repair" it after you move it but a better way is to use a good P2V application. Sysinternals and VMware and many others offer applications to create targeted VM's out of physical machines with the repairs installed.
