How to import VHD into Hyper V 2012

timb551 asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-22

I have a VM server made up of 3 vhd's.

I need to move it to a new Hyper V server running 2012 Hyper V.

I have powered down the VM and then tried to import the server using Hyper V manager.

It wont find the server, presumably because they are vhd files not vhdx files.

What are my options?
