So I have a Window Server 2008 machine that I need to restore. The machine is on, but will not boot into the OS.
I really don't need the machine anymore.
I have Windows Server Backup vhd files.
Is there anyway to create a bootable image from the vhd files? I have other servers that can connect to the machine, run HyperV, run Windows Server Backup, but if the server will not boot to the operating system I think I am screwed.
I have tried creating a VM in HyperV but when I set any of the .vhd files to the VM IDE, the virtual machine will not boot.
If I could extract an image from the Windows Server Backup .vhds than I can create a VM and solve my problem. But I get the impression I cannot do this with Windows Server Backup .vhds
