comment What would happen if I did a “Boot to VHD” to a VHD that was configured to run under Hyper-V?
@MDMarra - a) Not really b) Do you think it might be useful information to exist on the internet? As in, if someone else was to google for this topic and landed here, would the internet be a better place, or a worse place, for the answer being posted here? Or, should that person "just test it"?

Actually, Hanselman specifically notes this in the article: "Second, doing this makes your VHD less portable, because if you move it inside Virtual PC or to another machine, all the devices will freak out and try to reinstall (or maybe just not work) so be aware of that."

@JakeOshins - Good point..."those VHDs have an OS image in them set up to run within a Hyper-V VM"; as opposed to Hanselman's example where he is creating a VHD during the Windows install process, installing the OS to that VHD, adding it to the Boot Manager, and then booting to it....which works prefectly, because it was literally installed on his physical machine. What happens when I put the VHD I'm downloading onto my machine and boot it..will Windows properly detect hardware changes and install the appropriate drivers? I think I'll try this and see.

Not sure why this would be downvoted. Perhaps because I gave a specific example which adds specific context and clarity to the question rather than leaving it more vague?

So, to clarify: I am running Windows 7x64; so I can install VMWare Workstation and natively open the above linked MS Hyper-V VM? Or, create a Windows 200 Server r2 VM within VMWare, and then use that to open the MS Hyper-V VM?
