Speedup tip for installing Windooze: How to clone a Windows installation
Authored by: interlard on Apr 23, '06 06:43:43PM

I have an old PC laptop that I managed to just copy off into Virtual PC. It was a real hacking experience (thanks to this HAL you mention), but no way am I buying ANOTHER Windows license, when I already have one.

Now that we have Parallels & BootCamp, I'd like to do the same, but for some reason Virtual PC crashes when I try to copy its files. And since Parallels haven't released the Image Tool, I have no way to copy the files into the Parallels virtual hard drive.

If anyone way smarter than me wants to work that out, I'd be very pleased to follow along. :-)
