    Hi.
    i got an installation of elastix in vmware and the size is around 2.5GB.
    i would like to ask if it is possible to copy in a way the already installed system to a compact flash (through usb reader) and start a machine Alix 3d3.
    have in mind that vmware installation has similar hardware as the Alix machine.
    any ideas on how to do the job?

    If you have the same version of Elastix you may use the backup / restore module.

    I built a BartPE ISO with Acronis loaded on it. I booted up BartPE in the virtual machine, loaded network support, then mapped a network drive on my VM Host and created a full backup with Acronis to the mapped drive. From the VM host, I then put the backup on a usb thumb drive. I plugged the USB drive into the new physical machine and then loaded BartPE and retored the image. Works like a charm.
