An ISO image is usually an installer to install software or an operating system.

Your VHDX already contains a working operating system.

So not really.

The image VHDX needs to be converted to work with different computers, or bare metal, you are better using a Hypervisor, if you want to share virtual machines, and make them portable.

So how can I capture image of my virtual machine and that image I want to use it on physical machines later.? I want the image file to be capture on a media so that we can test on different physical machines.

Thanks

Use a product like Aronis, which can convert computer to a physical machine.

what you want to do is a Virtual to Physical Conversion.

Not actually physical conversion, but I need to capture image of the virtual machine. I could not find Aronis on Google.

Thanks

You cannot use a virtual machine image on a physical computer, unless it's changed matched to hardware e.g. converted.
