My company have a number of Windows 2000 machines onsite running in a production environment. We want to migrate from a physical machine to a VM environment to ensure continued service. Upgrading windows is not an option as some of the software supports legacy equipment and there is no modern alternative.
Is there a method to image the PC in R-Drive or Acronis and then convert the image to run on the VM Player?. The current VMWare Centre Stand Along converter does not support Windows 2000 and the older version I have VMware-converter-3.0.3-89816 generates an error when I run the program.
Any suggestions or support is appreciated.
When I try to install the latest version of standalone converter the error appears stating this needs Windows XP or later to enable the install.
To note the system does have Windows 2000 SP4 installed.
