Well as you already have the .VHD I would fire up XenConvert on another machine that can see the XS 6 server and choose the option to convert to the XS host

It used to be possible to create a dummy virtual machine to the specs of the one you have converted (CPU etc). You would ensure the option to start the machine automatically wasn't checked and then delete the VHD for that machine from the storage it's on, making a note of its name.

Then copy the VHD you converted over, and rename it to the name of the VHD you just deleted.
