You can import the Boot Camp partition as a virtual machine, creating a VMware virtual machine that copies the partition.


Power on the boot camp partition. See Power On the Boot Camp Partition as a Virtual Machine.


  1. Select Window > Virtual Machine Library.
  2. In the Virtual Machine Library window, control-click the Boot Camp virtual machine and click Import.
  3. Change the name for the imported virtual machine in the Save As text box from the default Boot Camp to something unique, and indicate where to save it.
    The default destination is the Virtual Machines folder created by Fusion.
    Fusion displays the disk space needed for the import, and the space available on the current disk.
  4. Click Import.
    When the import is complete, the virtual machine appears in the virtual machine list, in the powered-off state.
  5. Click Finish.
    Fusion installs VMware Tools after the virtual machine powers on, and reboots the system after the Tools installation is complete.
