Can I use a backup image to create a VM? Or do I have to re-create the OS on a drive and then use that?

Any recommendations for easy to use application for VM's? I'd use VMs both under W10 and Linux.


Thanks,

Mac

VirtualBox is the only free cross-platform one if you want the same interface and VM's between W10 and Linux hosts.

Generally I'd suggest building the VM from scratch using the OS's ISO to install as the hardware is obviously different from your physical PC.

If I want to preserve many applications on an old W7 pc, how would I accomplish that after creating a VM using the W7 disc or ISO?

Thank you.
