How to move Win 7 PC install to Mac using Parallels & ISO file?


I have a PC laptop running Windows 7 64-bit. I would like to create an ISO disc image of the OS and use Parallels 6 to install Win 7 in a virtual environment on a Mac Book Pro 13"(2010; 7,1) using OSX Lion.

What PC application can I use to create the ISO file? I was going to use the native Win 7 backup application because Acronis True Image only creates .TIB files. However, I want to exclude some directories and the inbuilt backup app doesn't have that option.

Will this work if I create an ISO on Win 7 and open it in Parallels?

I heard Parallels 6 requires Windows 7 installation disc to ensure hardware and driver issue compatability.
