Veeam Agent for Windows is a powerfull tool.
Is it possible to use it to virtualize PCs (P2V)?
Can I backup a physical PC, create a VM (with VMware Workstation and/or VirtualBox) and restore the backup to the VM?
Are EFI and/or UEFI BIOS supported?
Regards

You can convert backups to VMDK and then import those. You can then create a VM and add those VMDK's. For more information have a look at our user guide.

You can do instant vm recovery to Hyper-V as well (not to VMware).

Marius,

Additionaly you can mount the Recovery iso and perform a bare metal recovery to a vm with a blank disk.

Many thanks for the answers.
Is conversion to VMDK available for the free version of Veeam Agent for Windows?

You are welcome!

Yes. Restore as virtual disk is available in Veeam B&R Free edition and it works for backup files created in VAW FREE.
