So I created a WindowsXP install using an NTFS drive in VMPlayer and now I want to make an image of it using dd. Here is the diskpart info from Windows: enter image description here

Then I use Kali as a live-cd and I find like a millions sd drives under /dev:

I was able to create the image from /dev/sddq1, but I want to know what all those extra drives are.

Anyone?

Edited to show the results of lsblk enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

  • Looks like vmplayer is doing something silly. What does lsblk show? – psusi May 6 '15 at 2:27
  • See above and tell me what you think. – Garrett Whelan May 6 '15 at 23:40

    Instead of pictures, copying and pasting the text would be better, but yes, it seems that vmplayer is emulating a whole ton of virtual disk drives that are each only one sector long, which seems to be a rather silly thing to do. – psusi May 7 '15 at 1:36
  • You can't copy and paste it out of the VM without installing the tools package, which I haven't :( – Garrett Whelan May 7 '15 at 18:09
  • Or you could open stackexchange inside the vm instead of outside ;) – psusi May 7 '15 at 19:47
