Does anyone know if it is possible to "convert" a VMware guest to be a Fedora-
I first tried with Win2k. I know that Win2k basically works becasue I did a
fresh install onto a virtual IDE disk. But, my Vmware guest uses a SCSI disk.
Could not get it to work.
OK, so lets try something simpler: Fedora 9.
Rather than going the whole way, lets just see if I can get the disk to be
recognized. So, define a new guest with a IDE virtual disk and a Fedora 9
install disk ISO image. Boot up into rescue mode.
1. First, add a new storage SCSI device and use the vmdk file from VMware ...
nope, no good partition table.
2. Next, convert the vmdk file to raw using qemu-img and use this raw image for
a new storage SCSI device ... still did not work ... no good partition table
What am I doing wrong?
Does anyone know if the SCSI device support works?
