Does anyone know how to restore this .img file to VM or even to a HDD?

By jakepp ·
Hi,

We were using a company to host a virtual machine on their servers. They were using Xenserver and we had agreed that once the project was over we would get the VM back.

I sent a hard-drive to them and I received a .img backup (not the vm itself), so the image is a copy of the underlying block device the Xen domU is using.

Does anyone know how to restore this .img file to VM or even to a hard-drive?
I am familiar with VMconverter but in this case I don't know how it can help.
Any ideas will be helpful.

Thank you!

Hi

you can covert the .ims to an ISO using
imgburn (http://www.imgburn.com/)
imageiso (http://www.ezbsystems.com/ultraiso/)
winiso (http://www.winiso.com/)

or just un- img directly to the disk. (or VHD)

It is a raw disk image.

Write it back to a disk, with, e.g., dd. http://www.chrysocome.net/dd

then your going to have to do a VM image after the recovered raw image is up and running on hardware.
