VMware: Convert VHD to VMDK with WinImage

Last week I’ve converted a .VHD (Microsoft Virtual PC) to .VMDK for a customer with the application WinImage, the process was very easy.. a little how to:

WinImage 8.5: Download



– Select: Convert Virtual Hard Disk image..


– Select: Create Fixed Size Virtual Hard Disk


– Select, Safe as: VMware VMDK (*vmdk), select target location and type the new (.vmdk) file name

    Helaas duurt de conversie soms erg lang en gaat het niet altijd goed. Maar handige tip! Ook al diverse keren gebruikt. (Je kunt het ook voor Hyper-V en Xen gebruiken trouwens :-))

    Thank you! Great and very useful post!

    I also tried qemu-img for Windows, and it works perfectly.

    It’s free, portable and it runs under CMD.

    For example, to convert VHDX to VMDK:

    qemu-img.exe convert FileSource-Image.vhdx -O vmdk FileDestination-Image.vmdk
