Instead of copying a VHD to another virtual disk you can also copy the virtual disk contents to a physical disk. This way you can convert the VM to boot as a physical machine. Note that some modifications may be necessary on some systems.

The screen below shows how to configure a physical disk target. Select ‘Image to Disk” as the backup type, then the virtual disk source file, and finally the physical target disk.

Note that the target disk will be deleted when the backup task is run.

Note: Make sure your boot settings are configured to force booting from the “correct” disk. Once you have several bootable disks in the server, the BIOS might use the “wrong” one next time you boot.
