Every input you make to a Virtual Machine is usually made using the Right Alt key on the keyboard. That is the Alt Gr key to the right of the Space Bar - the "Alt" to the left will NOT work. You can then press the Delete button to submit a Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

If your VM is starting in Full Screen mode, you may also be able to take the VM software out of Full Screen by pressing Right Alt and the Enter key, which may un-maximise it so you can access your host computer.

Remember you can always access the host computer by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete, which will ALWAYS show Task Manager on the host.

Have you checked in the "Readme" file which is included with the VHD? I'm pretty sure it's included there.
