    My Windows laptop died with a fan error.

    The hard drive is fine, I can read it from a USB dock.

    Is there a way to build a VMWare Fusion VM from the drive? I can't us the PC migration tool since it requires a running PC.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    I've usually done this (Physical to VM conversion) as a two step process.

    Image the drive with Acronis True Image. Import the image (.TIB file) using VMWare Converter.
