Hi Forensic Focus,

I have an image created by Clone Zilla and I wanted this to be converted or booted to a virtual Machine (VWware Workstation).

Here's what's inside the image file.

Tried using Qemu-img to convert it to VMDK but still not able to boot it with VMware.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

If it is a Windows OS have you tried opengates?

"All current Windows versions are too stupid to boot after the hardware to which the root disk is connected to has changed. This happens for example if you try to boot a raw copy of a Windows installation in a virtual machine like VirtualBox or VMWare or if you try to use your old Windows installation on a new PC."

It has worked for me in the past.

Hi AmNe5iA,

The clone came from a Windows 2003 machine.

I have not used opengates, I'll try to check it.

Thanks,
