This is really cool. Windows 7 can boot to VHD. To do this you have to change the BCD store of your machine. But there is more : you can also do this without changing the host machine !
- put a (bootable) VHD on the host machine
- create a bootable USB
- change the BCD of the USB stick ! (point to the VHD)
This enables you to boot from USB stick into a Windows 7 VHD.
you can quickly use the hardware of a system without changing the system !
You want to try Windows 7 on an XP laptop but you don’t want to change the XP laptop, because it’s the family’s laptop ;).
Try it. It’s cool !
