The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter provides a Microsoft-supported, freely available, stand-alone solution for converting VMware virtual machines and disks to Hyper-V-based virtual machines and virtual hard drives (VHDs). This tool simplifies low-cost, point-and-click migration of Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2003 SP2/R2 SP2 guest operating systems from VMware to Hyper-V.
