Cloning BitLocker encrypted disk to VMWare Fusion image?

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have a ThinkPad running Windows 7 Enterprise with a BitLocker encrypted drive. I would like to clone or somehow convert this physical machine into a virtual machine that I can with either VMWare Fusion 5 or Parallels Desktop 8 on OS X. Is this even possible given the BitLocker encryption? (HowTos)
