Hyper-V 2012 R2 to Hyper-V 8.1

Last Modified: 2014-11-12

Just for the sake or doing testing or implementing crash recovery, i have set the following & it is not working.
It does not make sense to me as I can do the same tests using VMware and tests are successful.

Here is what I have done.
I have created some Hyper V's on Windows Server 2012 R2's.
Now back to 8.1, I am trying to import those VM's. After clicking the Import Virtual Machine, & pointing to the correct location, the vm import is unable to see the vhdx file extension!

What the! Why cannot I import some vhdx that I clearly visible from the file location but Hyper-V cannot see them?
