I have a server 2008 r2 instance with hyper-v.  I had a windows 7 instance.  Can I boot directly to it?

Have  you tried this before?  I did and it did not work.  I don't have the error with me.  I am not trying to add a new vhd to a boot menu.  I am trying to add one created using hyper-v.  I do not think that it is that simple.  The link you sent has someone installing the os to a new vhd.  This is not what I am looking for.

bcdedit /enum all
