Have an existing physical Windows server that you'd like to convert to a Hyper-V image? Version 3.,0 of the free Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter adds that ability.
Back when version 2 of the software appeared in April, Microsoft promised it would release this feature before the end of 2014. The converter can handle any server release from Windows Server 2008 on, and any desktop client from Vista onwards.
It's a free release which runs on Windows Server 2008 R2, Server 2012 or Server 2012 R2.
