VHDX or VHD

Just want to get my facts straight.

I can only use a VHDX on a Win 2012 Srv.
I can only use a VHDX on a Windows 8 client.

In other words if I create a VHDX on Srv 2012 and then create a VM a win 7 VM the disk must be VHD in order for the win 7 VM to.be able to use it...

Is that correct?

No, you can use a VHDX and install Windows 7 onto it. VHD and VHDX are purely the format of the virtual hard disk.

I would opt for the latter VHDX where possible for performance and stability reasons.

Sounds like the old joke about a consultant going into a factory where the main production machine is broken.

Consultant fixes it with a $2 part and charges $1000 for the service call.

Company says that very expensive for a simple $2 dollar fix.

Consultant says it's knowing what $2 part to fix that costs $1000.

Pay the guy his points.
