Cannot add VHD file to VM

As put in my prevous question, I have a virtual SBS2008 which has crashed.
This was because of a hard drive failure.

I have exported the vm to an external hard drive but when I try to mount the VHD file on another hyper V server I get an error saying:

FAILED TO ADD DEVICE MICROSOFT SYNTHETIC DISK DRIVE.

CANNOT ATTACH STORAGE MEDIA TO THE CONTROLLER BECAUSE THE
SPECIFIED LOCATION IS IN USE.

How do I get around this?

Do you want to add it to the virtual IDE-bus or virtual SCSI-bus? Try another SCSI-ID (or IDE-ID).
