Do you have Hyper-V configured? e.g. Added the Hyper-V role to Windows 2008 Server.

You need to add the VHD you have created to a virtual machine, created using Hyper-V Manager.

HyperV is configured, and I can add it as a vhd (but the last time I had tried this in a different situation---it wasn't able to boot).

so I'm checking to see if there is something I need to know prior to adding this vhd.

P2V are not often straightforward..... physical machine drivers, can cause boot issues.
