Perhaps I should explain further I have 3 windows 7 Pro machines (no domain, no server, just workgroup machines) I want to image into a VDI system (Citrix Xenserver). I know Citrix makes a tool for that but it always fails. I am willing to pay for a image solution that includes restore to dissimilar hardware but most that I have seen cost hundreds of dollars every year and are on a subscription basis. I am looking for something that will be affordable for a 1 man IT shop and a 1 time purchase. Looking for something in the $400.00 or below range if possible. I have looked at tools like sysprep which would actually work in this case but I am looking for a way of not modifying the original system at all. My intention is to keep the old system running and boot the new VM. It will of course immediately fail Windows validation but that is ok. I will then tweak and install the VM drivers, Change IP address, and once everything is known ok then wipe the physical system and activate windows on the VM. I should have no problems activating windows as this is a full OEM copy not tied to any manufacturer.
