I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Windows 8.1 on dual boot, using GRUB Loader to select between operating systems. I want to convert my Ubuntu physical machine to virtual. I've looked into VMware Converter but it needs another system running Windows for remote connection which I don't have access to at the moment. I'm planning to run a backup software like CloneZilla to create image. But can this image be restored on my virtual machine?
And if I'm deleting Linux partition what is the safest way to accomplish it? Without damaging the Windows partition or startup. (I ended up messing this up last time when I had Windows 7 and BackTrack)
