VBoot Overview

VBoot allows you to boot a physical computer from a single virtual disk file in VHD/VMDK/VDI/Raw format. Each file contains a single operating system. It supports Windows 2000, Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, 2003 Server, 2008 Server and Linux 2.6, 32- and 64-bit. VBoot makes multiple boots extremly simple. You simply copy a single file to a physical computer, and it can boot to the OS contained inside that file. VBoot provides native XP VHD boot, Vista VHD boot, Windows 7 VHD boot, Linux VHD boot, 2003 server VHD boot and 2008 server VHD boot.

VBoot is very easy to use, you can install a new operating system to the virtual disk file from OS cd/dvd or .iso files, then boot the computer using the generated virtual disk file.

VBoot for the first time also enables you to install Windows from an iso file, instead of using a physical cdrom drive.

VBoot supports differencing disks and very easy to use. You can easily recover to a prior state, or make the session immutable where all system changes will be discarded after reboot, and thus making it ideal to deal with any computer virus or spyware.

You can use our MyOldPCs software to convert your physical machine to a virtual disk file, you can either run the virtual disk file as a virtual machine using VMLite Workstation, or use this same file to boot your new physical PC directly to achieve even better performance.
