How can I move XP on Boot Camp partition in a virtual machine on a new iMac?

Yesterday, I bought a new iMac to replace an iMac Core Duo older. I was running XP on Boot Camp partition and using Fusion to access. As the new iMac custom supports XP on Boot Camp partition, I want to use VMWae Fusion to run XP in a virtual machine on the new computer. Is there a way to get the current state of XP (with all the security and the SP3 updates) now on my Boot Camp partition, more than one virtual machine on the new computer?

No offense intended... Have you even read the linked web page and or documentation of Paragon go virtual?

In short, could start the Boot Camp partition natively, install and run Paragon go virtual to create a Virtual Machine in VMware Boot Camp partition and run the resulting Virtual Machine with VMware Fusion on the new Mac.

Then you can do what you want with the old computer after deleting the partition Boot Camp with Boot Camp Assistant as you can't keep physical installation on the old system if your running a virtual copy of it on another system without purchasing another license from Microsoft.  Also, you will need to reactivate Windows XP and other software that follows what material it was initially installed on the virtual machine.

Note: You can even create a Virtual Machine from the Boot Camp partition with VMware Fusion in two different ways, or even to use VMware vCenter Converter such as the use of virtual Paragon to go however I strongly recommend using Paragon go virtual methods due to what I consider a major flaw in the way they create the virtual hard disk when you use the command import on the Boot Camp partition and a rate higher failure by using the other methods/software VMware VMware compared to Paragon go virtual.  For the non-technical user Paragon go virtual is the best way to go IMO and the entire process usually takes less time, then the methods of VMware.

  • How can I pay for the reservation of memory on all virtual machines to "0"?

    I am trying to write a script that will pay for the reservation of memory on all virtual machines that are invited in a cluster to '0 '.  We have book too much memory, and this setting should allow VMWare facilities manage reserves memory for me.  I have hundreds of virtual machines to update, so I can't do it by hand.  I hope that it is possible via the CLI.

    Can someone help me with this please?

    Matt example work certainly, and I'm sure that he was going to follow up with something similar to this after having confirmed if it worked or not because it is much more serious on the optimization of code for speed, but I'll (try to) save the effort. To test its extract on a cluster of 45 VMS, it took more than four minutes to complete.  The excerpt below took about 25 seconds.  The difference is of course to use the cmdlet "Get-View" and that it can run asynchronously so (it begins a vCenter task and immediately passes the following).  Of course, this will also put more of a strain to your vCenter server, so keep that in mind.

    $spec = New-Object VMware.Vim.VirtualMachineConfigSpec
    $spec.memoryAllocation = New-Object VMware.Vim.ResourceAllocationInfo
    $spec.memoryAllocation.Reservation = 0
    Get-Cluster "YOUR_CLUSTER" | Get-VM | Get-View -Property Config.MemoryAllocation | %{$_.ReconfigVM_Task($spec)}
    
  • How can I change the timeout for pressing escape on a virtual machine?

    Almost all of my work with Fusion requires changing startup arrested or by selecting a specific boot device from time to time. At most, merge gives 1 second and at least something close to zero. The start screen appears sometimes to be dried in total.

    Is it possible to change the timeout?

    Please, I beg you. It's driving me crazy because I have to wait for Windows has finished starting, and then restart so I will not have a system of "unclean" files It took me 12 minutes earlier start on another device.

    On a related note, the current behavior of escape by selecting the "Boot Device" Menu and rejecting so it's kind of braindead. No other bootstrapper or bios for this I know. If I could just hold down the escape key, this problem wouldn't be too bad.

    Thank you.

  • -> Lion (Delete Boot Camp Partition) Snow Leopard?

    I am currently on an iMac under Snow Leopard 10.6.8 (2.4 Ghz C2D, 4 GB of RAM, with VMware 3.1.3). I have Windows XP as a Boot Camp partition, but recently, I've downloaded the tool VMware Converter from VMware and I am now running XP via a Vitural Machine (saved in the My Documents folder).

    I can't install Lion because it cannot create the recovery disk and there is an error with my scores (I don't remember the exact wording). I'm guessing that it's because of my Boot Camp partition that has XP installed on it, which is no longer compatible with Lion.

    My question is: since I converted the Boot Camp partition in a Virtual Machine, can I remove the Boot Camp partition and still be able to run XP?

    It's on my iMac at work, and I rely on XP for 75% of my work, so I make sure that I always have access to XP via the Virtual Machine.

    Thanks in advance!

    My question is: since I converted the Boot Camp partition in a Virtual Machine, can I remove the Boot Camp partition and still be able to run XP?

    The short answer is Yes.

    The longer answer is to make sure that you run only a normal file based Virtual Machine and a virtual Boot Camp Machine partition not before deleting.

    It's on my iMac at work, and I rely on XP for 75% of my work, so I make sure that I always have access to XP via the Virtual Machine.

    If there is a system of work, then you shouldn't be move to Lion still and wait for at least the first version of Lion and a version of VMware Fusion, which is officially certified to be fully compatible with Mac OS X Lion before the upgrade.

  • Unit works only with the Boot Camp Partition

I am very new to the merger, but for now I'm very excited/impressed with the trial version - I just everything works fine!

    Sorry to ask 2 questions in once, but someone pourrait' one also point me in the right direction on how to remove my bootcamp partition and strictly use VMware so that I can create snapshots and free up hard drive space?

    How to remove my bootcamp partition and strictly use VMware so that I can create snapshots and free up hard drive space?

    If you want you can import the Boot Camp partition as a Virtual Machine based on a separate stand alone file, or you can install Windows from scratch.  After you import if desired you choose and you don't want to use Boot Camp natively or as a training Camp for the virtual partition Machine (not that any) and want to recover the space that the Boot Camp partition is far from taking the Macintosh HD you can then use the Boot Camp Assistant (/ applications/utilities/Assistant Boot Camp) to remove the Boot Camp partition to reclaim that space.

    For the import of the Boot Camp partition as a Virtual Machine based on a stand-alone file, take a look at: VMware Fusion (menu bar) > help > VMware Fusion help > creating virtual machines > import Virtual Machines > import the Partition Boot Camp

    Regarding the Boot Camp existing partition Virtual Machine...

    Note: These senses are different which have already been posted so read and follow through... Note: These steps assume that you have a single Apple to default installation of Windows on a single Boot Camp partition and Boot Camp of VMware Fusion single default partition Machine virtual (without a snapshot *) and if you have changed the partition Boot Camp Virtual Machine to add additional hard disks to be virtual or RAW disk then do not use these instructions unless you backup the Boot Camp partition the Machine package virtual first. * Also note that Fusion 2.0.0 may accidentally have a snapshot with the virtual partition Boot Camp Machine and it should not have, then you should check to ensure that the condition does not exist as well. (With merger closed if the partition Boot Camp Virtual Machine package is over 1 MB in size, then you might have a snapshot in place and do not continue with these instructions.)

    ===

    1. If the merger is open, close it.

    2. in a Terminal (/ Applications/Utilities/Terminal) copy and paste command, as the following and then press Enter and it will delete the partition Boot Camp Virtual Machine of the metadata and the Virtual Machine to help.

    Note: This does not affect the Boot Camp partition install windows in that it does not remove it.  Also be sure you copy all the command line below, as well as, "RM" at the beginning of the ' (quote) after the s in the Machines. "

    RM - dfr "/Users/$ the specified item was not found./Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines.

    3. start Fusion (/ Applications/VMware Fusion) and select the Boot Camp partition on the window library of Virtual Machine, and then ctrl-click it and select Delete.

  • Problems with Windows 7RC in the Boot Camp Partition

    I have Windows 7 RC (32-bit) running on a Boot Camp partition on a 2nd generation of MacBook Air.  When I try to load it in VMWare Fusion 2.04, I get a BSOD just after the "Starting Windows" screen finishes loading.  It says that Windows has detected a problem, try to restart and executes the boot system diagnostic tool, nothing helps.  I tried implementing VMWare using Vista and Windows Server 2008, 1280 MB RAM and 3D on and outside.  Any ideas?

    At the time current Windows 7 in any version is not supported by Apple on the Boot Camp partition, nor is it supported in any way under Fusion.

    Although it is not supported, it will work however it depends what Guest select you when the virtual machine based on the creation of a regular file.  I don't got no problem using Windows Server 2008, when the virtual machine based on the creation of a regular file.

    On your Boot Camp partition was a clean build or you have an existing Boot Camp partition previously Virtual Machine.  If you had a Boot Camp existing partition previously Virtual Machine then try the following.

    VMware is a company so I doubt that you have implemented the company however, your statement is a bit ambiguous because it is not clear if your always talk your partition Boot Camp Machine virtual matter in Fusion, you tried to select each of them as an OS on the entrance of Boot Camp partition on the Virtual Machine library and it didn't help the Boot Camp Virtual Machine partition number or to be issues with creating virtual machines with these operating systems.

    When you received your entry door, it came with a CD or operating system recovery disc.

  • How can I move a good copy of Windows XP Edition family of my G drive to a bad copy of Windows XP Pro onDrive C (startup disk) without destroying all the data and programs I have on these two discs?

    I have a computer that I needed an extra hard drive with a lot more memory that I had on this subject.  I had Windows XP Home Edition on it and was very satisfied with the system.  I came back from the computer repair store and my old hard drive was drive G, with all the old data still on it and a (used) and more C drive was in the unit and it's now my boot drive and I not paid no attention to it, he soiled by Windows XP Professional with service pack two.  I really did not notice the difference and I started to put several other new programs that I need on this computer and I went to work.  After over a long period, I now had a notice that it wasn't a valid Windows product.  I wondered of course that with Microsoft, because I had all my documents, my records, (now lost) and the key that was on the side of my computer.

    As I continued to find out what was going on, while doing a search for information on the drives, I found the original Windows program, I had, now my question is, how can I move on my C drive, while MY ORIGINAL Windows XP Home Edition causes my computer to start?  Most of the programs that I run is not compatible with Windows 7 or Vista even, and it cost me a fortune to buy all of these programs again.

    What can I do?

  • How can I move the Virtual Mode of Windows XP hard drive to another drive

    How can I move the Virtual Mode of Windows XP hard drive to another drive?

    TIA

    Hi Benyl,

    The vhd in programfiles basis cannot be moved or renamed, if done, xp mode stops at the start.

    To move the files under c, first to boot xp, instead of save mode the machine virtual., turn it off. (settings to prompt the user for action narrow close). Close the machine virtual., and then choose stop. This will remove the vsv file. Do not delete the .vsv file because it contains data if you have not registered in the virtual machine.

    Now, move it "C:\Users\CHRIS.domainname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows virtual PC\Virtual Machines\Windows XP Mode.vhd" to a desired location.

    Parameters of xp mode open, go to the hard drive 1 setting and reposition the hard drive to the new location of the vhd. You should now be able to start the virtual machine.
