need to reduce virtual hard drive size
Posted on 2013-10-29
Hi, I have recently upgraded an XP system to windows 7 Pro. the problem is that some of the software that was used in the xp system cannot run on windows 7 also cant run using the XP mode, I still get issues its a really old software. so my solution is to add the old system on the new computer as a virtual pc. I created the .vhd using Acronis ABR11.5 and then tried it out on a windows 8 computer with Hyper-v, it worked perfectly. now I'm trying to do it on the windows 7 system, and I get an error that the hard drive is to large and that it shouldn't exceed 127GB. now the file is about 50GB but the image was created from a 160GB hard drive, is there a way to get this to work on my Windows 7 Pro? the total files on the image are no more than 60GB tops.
Thanks in advanced
