[clug] Want to Virtualise an old Debian Potato System

G'day all,
I have a "legacy" Debian Potato (2.2.19) system with some proprietary
software and iBCS installed. This is way out of date and is being (slowly) replaced.

As part of the migration we are getting MS server 2012 systems installed very soon. 
I was thinking of taking advantage of the Hyper V and seeing if I can get my Debian system installed as a VM.

Anyone have any experience or recommendations on how to go about doing this?
Will 2012 Hyper v support this system? It is running on hardware that is circa 2005
I can get copy of the filesystems and partitions onto a physical disk.  That is easy.
What I do not understand (among many other things :-) is how to get that into a VM image that will run.
Any help or advice appreciated.
