    Virtual to Physical Imaging

    Evening All!

    Has anybody ever tried creating a virtual image from virtualbox/virtual pc etc, and deployed it to a physical box,

    Ive tried this once but the physical box I deployed it to just kept on rebooting itself,

    I think just having a base virtual image would be more easily manageable...

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Mart

    Sounds like it could be a HAL issue, I know if you use MySysPrep you can sort this out but from the top of my head I am not 100% sure as I haven't used it as I am not involved in imaging at the moment.

    I don't have a link but if you search the forum you should find it. MySysPrep is slightly more advanced and handles things a little better so I am told especially when it comes to the HAL. It does the same as SysPrep but has more features. All I recommend you do is take an image of what you have before you start playing with SysPrep/MySysPrep and then you have something you can restore back to before you started playing. When I first started with images it was just trial and error till I got it right.
