I have a Windows Server 2003 server running Blackberry enterprise server. This server has 2 drives, C & D.

I want to take this BES Server and using Disk2vhd create a VHD file that I can then put on my Hyper-V server and import the BES server to that.

Everything works great with one exception. Disk2vhd creates a seperate VHD file for each drive.

Since I can only mount one VHD file, how do I get around this? Do the VHDs need merged? What is the method to get the D drive on the BES box once it is up and running in Hyper-V?

Hyper V server is a Server 2008 R2 Enterprise box.

Hopefully I explained that well enough. Let me know if you have any questions.

You don't want to merge the two VHDs. In fact, I recommend that you use 1 VHD for each partition, which is exactly what you have. While the VM is off go to Settings for the VM in Hyper-V Manager. Click on either IDE controller. Select Hard Drive and then click on the Add button. Browse to the existing VHD file. Click Apply and then boot your VM. You can also add a SCSI controller and attach the VHD to the synthetic SCSI controller.
