Windows7, windows 2003 and VMware

By spn9876 ·
I have my laptop with Oracle ERP (R12) running on windows 2003. Now I have another new laptop with windows 7 original. Now I need to take out the HD from the old laptop and run the current Oracle ERP as virtual machine thro' USB as I can't reinstall the whole thing on the new laptop (win 7). Any suggestion.

Thanks a lot.

You're thinking the wrong way, for starters.

That isn't how you do virtual machines.

You need to a VMWare image of the installed 2k3 with the Oracle ERP, then run it in VMWare on the new machine.

Instructions for this come with the VMWare products needed. I believe you need to purchase VMWare Workstation to make the VM image.

Or use VirtualBox instead.
