    Ok
    I am trying to convert a windows 2003 server std edition 64 bit to a vhd file. I am running acronis enterprise server echo with u.r. I have converted many 32 bit server os's but first time trying a 64 os. I get a error that it only supports 32 bit. I come to realize that virtual pc is only 32 bit. Is there anyway I can convert my 64 bit os to vhd? Is it possible to convert it first to vmdk (vmware) and then convert to a vhd?

    Thanks,

    Neil.

    Hello ngebara,

    Thank you for your interesting in Acronis True Image

    Acronis True Image Echo Enterprise Server with Acronis Universal Restore can be used to convert image of 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 to any supported virtual disk. What is the build number of the program?

    Acronis True Image Echo with Acronis Universal Restore has the ability to do:

    P2V - Convert/migrate a disk image, created with the program (.tib image file), to a virtual disk file of the type you select (.vmdk, .vhd, .hdd). You will then be able to add the disk to a virtual machine of compatible type (VMware, MS Hyper-V or Virtual Server, Citrix XenServer, Parallels virtual machine). The further usage of the disk is below;

    V2P - Convert/migrate a virtual machine such as VMware into a physical machine, even if it has dissimilar x86 hardware and drivers to the original machine.

    Check the following article for more information.
