I currently have a Server 2008 box (32 bit install running w/o hyper-v installed, but on 64bit hardware). I'd like to get this machine running Server 08 with hyper-v and grab a snapshot of the current 08 install to run as as VM.
whats the best process to get this converted? I was thinking of:
- using vmware tools to p-to-v the box (using VMware vCenter Converter).
- convert the vmware image to a vhd (using vmdk to vhd convertor).
- install 64bit server 08 w/ hyper-v on the box
- attach the vm
does that sound doable? (It doesn't look like I can use the new MS virtual management tools since those are 64bit only and my one 64 bit box is tied up with a 32bit install. bah.)
