VHDMount without VHDMount


VHDMount without VHDMount

To mount a VHD file onto your file system, you either ran some very complicated VB (or PowerShell) Script or you used VHDMount.exe that came with Virtual Server.  If you’re running Windows 7 (or Windows Server 2008 R2), you can now use Diskpart.

So, from an elevated command prompt, run Diskpart.

Select the VHD in question:

sel vdisk file="c:\users\daven\desktop\xp professional.vhd"

Then attach it to your system:

attach vdisk


That’s it.  Pretty easy.
