The steps in short ...

1.   Configure network via penetcfg.exe and mount the share on \\\pub as driveletter Q:\

2.   use explorer to find the P2V-candidate (in this case it is on the drive currently mounted as C: in BartPE)

3.   Use diskmanagement and remove the driveletter (not required for non-Windows-systems)

4.   create a new VM and add a rawdisk for physical drive 0 ... and safe it as R:\temp\raw-disk.vmdk

5.   Close the VM and launch vmware-vdiskmanager with -r option and convert into a split disk we safe in Q:\


This procedure maybe somewhat slower than ghost32
- but it safes you one step as no restoring of a *.gho image into a vmdk is necessary!
