I have a Win 7 OS on a PC that I want to convert to a .VHD and use with Hyper-V.
Can I remove the drive from the PC, make it an external drive in a USB enclosure and then use the Disk2VHD utilitiy to create the .VHD file?
I do not want to create the image with the drive in the original PC for specific reasons, I only have the drive itself.
Thanks,

You can use WinImage, you can install it inside the PC in question, then create VHD of your PC then use that in your Hyper-V.
