    Hi!

    I have currently running a OS X 10.6, before I re-install my software I would like to save my current OS X as VM. So when I install the new one I still can check how the old was was configured, etc.

    Yes I know about TimeMaching restores, and rsync, ut I want a running system while I configure the new os.

    Is there any way to save a os as vm?

    thanks
    Roland

    10.6 is not licensed to run as a VM, so both Parallels and VMWare cripple their software to comply with Apple's ridiculous restrictions. Seems I have heard that Virtual Box doesn't enforce this restriction - if so, read their docs to find out how to do what you want.

    I haven't checked to see how OS X might work under a hypervisor - I know most hypervisors out there have tools to convert a running OS to a VM - but they are not 100% in my experience.
