Download P2V Migration Tool for Windows 7 released by Microsoft

Microsoft has now released Version 1.0 beta of the P2V (Physical to Virtual) Migration Tool at its Microsoft Connect portal. To download the tool and release notes from the site, you require a WindowsLive ID.

P2V Migration for Software Assurance uses the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and Sysinternals Disk2VHD to convert a user’s existing Windows XP or newer client environment to a virtual hard disk then automates the delivery of an updated and personalized Windows 7 operating system containing virtual machine with the user’s previous Windows environment, applications and Web browser.

The user’s previous virtual desktop retains its existing management components, domain membership and policies. The process also publishes applications and the browser for the user to access them seamlessly within Windows 7’s start menu.

    The download link is broken.

    I had to read the technet page carefully a couple of times to understand what this really is.

    Basically, if you are upgrading a XP SP3 or newer system to Windows 7, this will take your current configurations, virtualize it, and have it waiting for you once Windows 7 is finished installing. It will even put links to the virtualized apps in the new Windows 7 Star menu.

    I think…;-)

  2. Yes 🙂

    Btw there are some links at the end of the Technet Blogs page, whose link I have provided. You might want to check them out.
