Transfer server on a virtual machine like better?

Good afternoon.
You want to move the server, located on a physical machine, into dev.
The server is Windows XP, you must migrate without any changes.
From the beginning I was just using disk2vhd to migrate to a virtual disk all the data, but for some reason, this utility does not finish his work - just stops at 100% and then nothing happens, even tried at night to leave. Why? Is it possible to do something? Similar programs I found that can of running XP to do this operation.
Maybe you can suggest some other methods? In principle, physical access to the servers is, you can try to migrate with Acronis, but better, of course remotely.
Thanks in advance.

In your case the best way to do this is to deploy the virtual machine, install OS and necessary software, and then transfer the data from the physical machine. Otherwise, there are very a variety of artifacts. In the migration process and in subsequent work such a new path.
Is it possible to make a backup and then restore from the image on virtualke with XP installed? - neal_Bernha commented on June 7th 19 at 14:56
Or better Akronis? - neal_Bernha commented on June 7th 19 at 14:59

if you have the desire then poznaetsa take images or Acronis. I have suggested a way that will significantly reduce the likelihood of any negative post-effects. - Angelica.Russel commented on June 7th 19 at 15:05

Wow! Don't try to make a vhd from a running Windows XP! If something happened, you'd get a broken image. Be sure to do nahorodny.
Besides, to move would be problematic - there is high probability that will not start and will have to make a "recovery disk" to get it working inside a new path.
In this case, the Acronis to do image, and then convert? Or which way is best? - neal_Bernha commented on June 7th 19 at 14:58
better Acronis or similar programs where there is a recovery function on another computer. - neal_Bernha commented on June 7th 19 at 15:01

Look on the Internet about P2V (Physical to Virtual).

Most often it happens due to corrupted file system.
Run a disk check.
Again, usually the way with such a stop, still creates quite a working.
Verification of correction had, by the way, did not help. - neal_Bernha commented on June 7th 19 at 15:02

The server is Windows XP

...died of a broken template...

If you are moving to VmWare - they have a great Converter that will turn any car - even bare-metal, though the path in any environment - machine to ESXi
VMware Vcenter Converter Standalone Client? - neal_Bernha commented on June 7th 19 at 15:04
There's just Hyper-V - neal_Bernha commented on June 7th 19 at 15:07
uh...I do not understand. On XP is Hyper-V? XP is installed within Hyper-V? - isidro.Hermann82 commented on June 7th 19 at 15:10
on the server, where it will be necessary to transfer costs geever-VI. XP on a separate physical computer. - Angelica.Russel commented on June 7th 19 at 15:13
