    Convert Ghost image to HyperV VHD?

    I have a ghost image that I want to install onto a virtual machine. I have read that Ghost32 in Solution Suite 12 can do it but unfortunately I don't have a copy of Ghost32.

    Is there any other way to convert a GHO image to a VHD?

    Think you will need to find a copy of ghost32 for this, attach a vhd to your system and then run ghost32 to copy the disk image to the mounted vhd simples.

    I found a copy of Ghost 11.5 and did just that but the resultant VHD wouldn't boot.
    In the end I deployed the Ghost image onto a physical machine and then used Disk2VHD to copy it to a VHD. Resultant VHD boots fine.

    Thanks guys for the pointers.
