I am following a process to create a pc to boot from vhd only.
Part of the diskpart command is to create a vdisk file.
Create vdisk file=c:\7ent.vhd maximum 40960 type=expandable.
I read this as the vhd file will max out at 40gb and the vhd should be large enough to install Window 7.
When all is complete and I do boot from the vhd and check the size of the VHD, it is already 40gb.
What am I missing? What is the point of setting a maximum and type =expandable if the vhd will already be 40gb.
I also tried creating a vhd file only 7gb (large enough to install windows) If I try to copy above the 7gb I get the message not enough disk space. No being expanded.
Can someone explain this to me?
All help is appreciate.
