    I have Hard Drive Manager 2011 (with an update to version 2012 pending). I have not installed it yet as I need to get an answer to the following question first.

    I have an old PC which has Windows 2000 installed. It is a bit unreliable now, but I have an old image file of it that was created by Ghost 2003. I would like to be able to load it as a virtual operating system (in VirtualBox or VMWare) on my Vista laptop.

    Can Hard Drive Manager convert a Ghost 2003 image file into a virtual operating system file?

    If it can not, then I guess I will have to try to use Hard Drive Manager to make a virtual OS from my Windows 2000 in its current unreliable state. I have a single PC license for HDM which I do not want to waste on the old PC for just 1 operation. So can I do this WITHOUT having to install HDM on my old PC?

    You can create recovery media (cd or usb flash) with HDM and use it to make a needed image.
    And perhaps you can use trial ver. Ghost to deploy a image on hdd, then just make an image using the HDM recovery media.
