Several posts (like this one) seem to indicate that if you have a physical hard drive, you can "just" connect it with VMWare and it will be converted in a VMWare virtual machine.
I have a physical disk which is bootable (but not booted into!), and is accessible by Windows as drive
H:. With all the options that VMWare offers to convert (a live system, a VHD image, etc) it doesn't list a way to simply pick up a physical drive and use it.
How can I convert this physical drive with a working OS to a VMWare image?
note: I also have a VHD backup (larger than 137GB), but not the VMC file, because I chose Full Backup from Vista; VMWare Workstation can only connect if the VHD is accompanied by a VMC file
