    I haven't used Acronis specifically, but if the Acronis image file is a bootable ISO, you should just be able to tell VMware to use that when booting a new VM. It will start up the VM and boot off that disk. So, you configure your new VM, tell VMware to boot from your ISO, then fire up the VM and it should boot into the Acronis image and allow you to restore or whatever the Acronis image allows. If the Acronis file is just a proprietary image file, you'll need to install the OS in your VM and restore from the Acronis application. Hope that helps.

    Guys, please use the appropriate sub forum to post your questions.

    This in no way pertains to BH Seo Tools.

    Please, i request everyone to atleast take this necessary steps from here on. Even though the mods here are doing their best to make the forum running in a healthy state, we members should atleast be courteous to post the questions in the correct subforum

    The mods cant be here all the time watching each and every post and rectify it.

    thanks but what is the right forum?

    i think this is a blackhat. think about it. ability to use multiple installs of programs plus using trial versions over and over is a blackhat tool. it is not a legal one in many ways which is why i posted it here.
