Cannot boot into VHD on Windows 7 PC
Posted on 2014-01-22
I have a brand new Windows 7 PC (HP Compaq 6300 Pro - C3A33ET#ABU). I have been asked to convert an existing Windows XP PC to a VHD, make the new Windows 7 PC a dual boot system.
I took a VHD of the existing XP system using Disk2VHD. I chose VHD as opposed to VHDX, and I chose the option to "Prepare for use in VHD".
I have copied the VHD to C:\VHDs\SALES.VHD, and have created a new BCD entry however, when I choose to boot from the VHD, the PC hangs at "Windows is loading files".
I'm not sure how to get past this...
