A PC died. It had Macrium Reflect running, which took a disk image every night. I want to use one of these to create a VM of the machine, so I can make sure I've got everything off it.
I used Reflect to create a vhd file from the latest disk image, and now want to use that in VM Player 14. According to a few places I've seen (such as the comment to this SO answer, and this blog post), I should be able to do this. However, I can't see any way to tell VM Player to use the vhd file.
Any suggestions? Thanks
vhd or vhdx is format used in Microsoft hypervisor, and virtual servers. To make it to workable in VMplayer you will have to convert it to in .VMDK format which is standard in all VMware's virtualization products.
You can use StarWind V2V Converter - Free Tool from StarWind! to achieve this. Once you convert, create a VM in VMware player and attach this newly converted disk as VMDK to that VM.
