You can import the Boot Camp partition as a virtual machine, creating a VMware virtual machine that copies the partition.

1

From the VMware Fusion menu bar, select Window > Virtual Machine Library.

2

In the Virtual Machine Library window, select Boot Camp partition and click Import.

3

Change the name for the imported virtual machine in the Save As field from the default Boot Camp to something unique, and indicate where to save it.

The default destination is the Virtual Machines folder created by VMware Fusion.

VMware Fusion displays the disk space needed for the import, and the space available on the current disk.

4

Click Import.

When the import is complete, you see the virtual machine added to the virtual machine list, in the powered-off state.

5

Click Start Up.

VMware Fusion installs VMware Tools after the virtual machine powers on, and reboots the system after the Tools installation is complete.
