Help with Disk2Vhd

I am using disk2vhd, I want to boot a computer from VHD.  If I create a VHD from scratch making it bootable from the Win 7 disk and edit the BCD, it works fine.  If however, I use disk2vhd on a drive and try to boot the Windows starts to load (logo) then I get BSOD.  I have created a VHD from a computer using disk2vhd and tried to boot to the same system with no joy.  I thought it may be drivers, but do not see how when the disk is from the same system.  I thought the use of the software was straight forward, not sure now if I am missing something.

How are you booting to the same system when the image in a VHD? Isn't it now in a virtual environment HyperV?  Because it would be a driver issue then

best solution is to create the VHD with virtual software (like VMWare), since it create an platform independent OS, regardless of drivers. download a trial version, create your VM, and connect it from disk management.

I was hoping that could salvage the existing physical system, again because cannot locate original software, but no matter how I cut it, still can not get it to function.  So can I take it that it cannot be done?

Are you Virtual Box or something to run the virtual OS?

We have HyperV, running our main virtual machines.  I am just looking to boot a system from VHD.  More importantly to convert a physical to Vhd and boot.  I have found some reading material that states that I should be able to boot the computer from a PE disk and run ImageX to capture a WIM
