I'm investigating the possibility of using AWS for 'disaster recovery' restores of Windows images.
To be able to do this, I need to be able to boot the backup system recovery environment, which is a 'custom' WinPE ISO in an AWS VM
The problem with that last statement, is that if you want to import a custom VM into AWS; you can't use an ISO image as the source
The source image has to be a 'disk' (e.g. a VMDK from VMware) see here (2nd last response for a concise summary of the requirements).
So I need to convert the ISO image into a disk image - and the disk image needs to be "vanilla" (i.e. no GRUB etc.) The image needs to look like a 'standard' Windows disk image (albeit a WinPE disk image).
Not sure if I have posted this question in the right forum, if not, hope it can be moved.
