|Vmware offers a solution to convert a physical XP pro and up to a virtual state. Not exactly the same as a clone.|
There are a few ways. Get Ghost, Acronis. Both good products if you know how to use them they are great.
See also things like G4U, and partimage and dd and rsync and other tools that can be used for linux.
There is also a way to make barts or even windows to use runtime.org's DriveImage XML Kind of slow but it works.
