VMware to Native

Yes indeed you can. In order to transfer data from a virtual drive in vmware to a physical one, first select the physical drive in the vmware option as well as your image file. That way darwin can access both. Next run this command:


dd if=(source image, usually something like /dev/disk0) of=(destination hard drive, again usually something along the lines of /dev/disk0

Wait a few hours after running that and you should be good to go. Note that the partition will only be as big as the image, so you might want to use a program like partition magic to expand it to the full drive size!


Hope that helps,
