    Question How can I virtualize existing physical machine?

    Hello,

    I want to virtualize an existing Windows 7 laptop install into an image file which can be run with VirtualBox. What tools can I use to perform this action? I'm also satisfied with a reference to a helpful thread on this forum!

    Thanks for your replies!

    You could try cloning it, but you might run into activation issues with Windows.
