I have a Windows 2008 Server Platform with Hyper-V and a Windows 2000 Professional Server machine. I would like to know if there is an automated way to convert the windows 2000 to a VM and import to Hyper-V.

Thank you for your assistance.

I will add that the license installed on that 2000, itsn't valid for the new farm if it's an OEM license (bundled with the hardware). Microsoft don't support License Transfers from OEM. I think it's a erroneous aproach, but that's how they work. To be perfectly legal u will need to buy an 2000 Server license (I think u can't, cos it's in the EOL program). – Carlos Garcia Jan 24 '11 at 9:27
