    Stupid question, maybe, but if I have a copy of VPC, and I have a Win2k image from it, in the VPC Sparse Disk Image format, and I want to try this copy of Win2k on Q/EMU or something else, is there any way to convert this into a normal disk image? Thanks!

    What do you mean by "normal disk image"?

    He means converting the VPC Windows "Image" (or "virtual hard drive" that contains this Windows installation) to a regular OS X DMG (Disk Image) in order to try running it with another emulator.

    I was interested in trying this once as well, but never figured out how to do it or if it's even possible. :(

    Q can import VPC 7 images, but it didn't work for me.

    Mmm, that might have potential. I'll give it a try. Thank you! :)

    Yeah, it didn't work for me, either. :(

    When I select that option, the disk image from VPC is grayed out. And there doesn't seem to be any support for that option -- I googled the menu text and got nada. :(
