Usa a VMWare Fusion file for Boot Camp?

Just got my new iMac, installed VMWare Fusion Beta, Parallels Desktop and have XP images on both (played with them before on my MacBook).

However, I today also installed Boot Camp 1.3 Beta, and wanted to know if I could somehow use any of the existing installs (images) from either VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop (XP) on Boot Camp, rather than install from zero...


Alternately, I thought:


On either Fusion or Parallels, use Acrons True Image backup, make the backup of that install, install a Boot Camp instalation of XP, install Acronis on that install, restore the Fusion of Parallels install to the Boot Camp.


Sounds like a lot of work, but yes, no, maybe?


Reasons are simple:


VMWare images have been built, groomed, perfected, loaded, etc., and in the interest of saving gobs of time and duplicate work.......get it?
