Making a bootable VHD issues.
I am trying to make a bootable VHD with Windows7 as the OS with all my companies important programs, shares, printers…etc. on it.
I successfully created a VHD in Windows 7. I used imagex from the Windows 7 AIK to push the Windows 7 install.wim file to the VHD. Properly configured the boot menu with BCDedit and successfully booted to the VHD. Then added all the programs that will be used, applied all the updates, printers and shares following our companies  workstation setup protocol. Booted back to the local OS and detach the VHD.
Using the Deployment Tools Command Prompt found in the Windows 7 AIK I compressed the completed VHD and convert it to a .wim file. Using the following command:
 imagex /compress maximum /flags "Ultimate" /capture x: c:\install.wim "New Workstation VHD"
I copy the contents of a Windows 7 installation disc to the local desktop. I navigate to the folder d:\sources\install.wim replace that file with the compressed VHD I converted to an install.wim file.
I burn this image using imgburn to a disc and I get hung up at the windows load screen.
I’m a little lost after that, I have no idea why it would hang any help or suggestions would be great!
