    Converting an existing Windows XP installation to a VirtualBox image

    29th June 2013

    Can be done in 2 steps, where 2nd step is optional:

    1. From Windows itself: use Disk2vhd to create the .vhd image (e.g. NOVA.VHD).
    2. (optional, requires VirtualBox) convert the VHD to VirtualBox-native VDI with VBoxManage clonehd NOVA.VHD nova.vdi --format VDI --variant Standard
