Promoting resident OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am deploying a number of server/workstations. The computers come with a pre-installed OS (Window 8.1).  I need to install Windows Server 2012 Hyper-v and run two OS's; the pre-installed 8.1 as one VM and a Windows 7 as a second VM.

    Is there a way to do this without starting from bare metal and reloading the pre-installed system? I have a lot to do and it will save a lot of cost is there is a way to promote or cause the pre-installed to run as a VM on top of Windows Server 2012 Hyper-v?

    Any direction will be greatly appreciated.
