    Hey folks,

    I'm halfway through upgrading the OSes on my computer from Snow Leopard/XP to Lion/Win7. Right now I have Lion installed and the old Boot Camp XP partition is still fully functional (typing this in Chrome on the XP side, gonna play some SW:TOR when I'm done!).

    What I would like to do is convert my XP partition to a VM (I have had VMware Fusion 3 for a while now) and then do a clean Win7 install for my Boot Camp partition.

    I'm no expert with Fusion, so I don't know if/how I can turn the partition into a file that resides on the OSX partition. Help/advice would be great. Thanks!

    That seems to be exactly what I'm after. Cheers!
