I have a vhd and a avhd file.  I have the original xml file that points to the avhd location.  Everything should be where it needs to be to show up in hyper-v.  it was there before I started copying the files around to try merge operations.  Call me a newbie.  I apparently followed the wrong blog, so I am trying to go back to a working system and start over.

    I recreated the vm and attached the vhd and avhd.  Did a merge and all is well.
