    Hi,

    I have done a full C: image of my Windows XP installation. I then try to restore it to a vmware virtual machine and everything goes OK until it asks for some drivers. I skip the drivers during the install because I don't know what driver it needs for a virtual machine. I thought a virtual machine is using generic drivers for all devices.

    Has someone managed to get this working as it should and could you make a small guide in steps what i need to do for a successful operation.

    Thanks in advance,
    Toby77jo

    Quoting statement from this press release:

    "Acronis True Image backup and restore software directly converts and imports backed up servers stored in an Acronis image file to the VMware Virtual Machine Disk (VMDK) format, allowing physical servers to be seamlessly migrated into virtual machines."

    Our customers are now requesting this functionality, based on the above press release. Is there an more concrete ETA on when this functionality will be available in True Image product (as committed to in the above press release)?
