1. A physical computer virtualization method, comprising:
receiving a virtualization instruction inputted by a user on a physical computer;
restarting the physical computer;
loading the physical computer with a virtual machine management system mirror image file after restarting the physical computer to boot the physical computer into a virtual machine management system;
obtaining physical disks of the physical computer;
creating a virtual machine through the virtual machine management system and using the physical disks of the physical computer,
wherein, when the virtual machine is created, the virtual machine is not allocated with virtual disks using files or disk blocks virtualizing the physical disks, and the virtual machine uses the physical disks as the disks of the virtual machine, such that the physical computer running in the virtual machine mode can be tested without a physical-to-virtual migration.
