    There really isn't a cold migration process anymore, VMware used to have a cold clone disk you could use but I think after Version 5.0 they discontinued it.  What are you trying to clone that requires a cold clone?

    I still have the coldclone cd construction kit on my website.
    The one from VMware is quite outdated nowadays - you can find it in p2p networks.

    But honestly there is no reason to use a Windows LiveCD with an outdatedConverter.
    I use a Linux LiveCDs together with the latest current Converter on the target - gives you latest patches plus better performance.

    If it is not overly complicated system/application, this is probably a good time to upgrade it and part of the upgrade, build it as VM.  OR introduce new instance of the application and phase out the old one.
