I do have a VHDx disk with with Version 1 system and a checkpoint with a Version 2 update. Some VHDs are inheriting the Version 1 System (parent disk). Now I would like to build another VM inheriting from the Version 2 update.
When creating a differencing disk for another VM, I am only able to select the parent disk, not the checkpoint. Does this mean that I am only able to make differencing disk from the vhdx file?
In the menu Action->New-Hard Disk... in the "Specify Name and Location" it is asking for the original disk to clone, and there is no option to select the checkpoint.
I know I can merge the checkpoint down to the parent, which is something I would rather avoid as it is breaking the disk for other machines which are using the Version 1 system.
