Windows "This article shows how you can convert a physical Windows system into a VMware virtual machine with the free VMware Converter Starter. The resulting virtual machine can be run in the free VMware Player and VMware Server, and also in VMware Workstation and other VMware products. Vmware Converter comes in handy if you want to switch to a Linux desktop, but feel the need to run your old Windows desktop from time to time. By converting your Windows desktop into a virtual machine, you can run it under VMware Server/Player, etc. on your Linux desktop."

Could be made easier by dd'ing the partition into a file, than converting from img into vmdk with a tool from qemu package I forgot the name of.
