How can I force Virtual PC 2007 with SP1 to use only one VHD file?

When I create a virtual machine in Virtual PC 2007, it creates a VHD file. But as soon as that file hits 4 GB in size it creates another .v0x file, where x = 1, 2, etc. Is there a way to change that behavior so that the VHD file grows in size instead of spawning other files?

After playing around with a couple of virtual machines, I found out that Virtual PC 2007 creates these .v01 files only when the VHDs are on FAT formatted drives like the external passport drives. If you create the virtual machine on an NTFS drive, Virtual PC 2007 does not split the VHDs.
