Good morning Server Fault,
I have several hard disks with installations of Windows XP, Vista, and 7. I do not want to (or rather can no longer) reinstall these Windows installations so I want to encapsulate the installations into an archive or archive parts for transfer into a Xen domU.
For starters, what format can I put this archive into, ISO? I know Windows allows entire hard drive backups in VHD format, but it's a Microsoft format that I doubt has any compatibility with Linux. Second, how do I transfer that file into Xen once I have it?
Thank you to anyone who read my question.
