Turn My Linux Distro into a VMX.

I am wondering how to turn my Linux Distro into a VMX to run in windows. I know you can use a free program called VMX Builder, but it wants a ISO. If there is a way to package my already configured distro, let me know. Thanks!

So you want it as a .vmx file, then turn that into a .iso file? Or do you want to make your current install into a .iso file?

Essentially, what is the entire purpose? If it is only to get your current setup into a VM, I'm confused as to why building a .vmx file isn't sufficient as well as what you need the ISO for.

Thanks for the clarification.
