Sorry for being a bit off topic, but since it refers virtualization an =
FreeBSD has VirtualBox, I=E2=80=99m wondering,
whether a so called vhd or vhdx file, which can be produced with =
virtualization tools like  disk2vhd, might be nothing but a raw dump
of the disk.

Reason behind: I would like to virtualize an HP notebook (an =
HP11-e-170eg). Several trials failed (Parallels cloning over network,
Hyper-V, p2v Vcenter Converter).

Now I thought of at least securing the hard drive once using=20

dd if=3D/dev/sd0 of=3Ddump

from a booted FreeBSD stick to an external USB3.0 large disk.

Question, whether the dump obtaind that way, can be used as a =
virtualization medium.
