    Is there anyway you can copy the full computer that holds the host of vmware for use inside vmware?

    You might want to try and reword or elaborate in that post Jack - dunno about anyone else, but I can't make senses of what you're getting at here ? :blink

    Jack, what you need to do is to make an image of you machine. Then you restore the image into vmware
    . At this point you won't be able to boot to the image (you'll bsod a lot). What you need to do then is boot that vm machine from the os cd and do a repair on the os. (make any sense?)

    Nice one Phil, I always just backed up my host and restored it in a VM.
