Anyone ever tried moving an installation from a virtual environment to
physical hardware?

I have successfully V2P'd windows with reasonable success --

you are lucky

but I'm
not sure how much of the "new hardware detect" on linux will happen
automagically, or if there is a way to force it to happen, or even if
the install would boot after the image is layed down.

there are mostly two things to setup: /etc/fstab to adjust the partition sheme and the video

as a start, "sax2-vesa" should give a working video interface
