The closest you can get is to mount the vhd in disk mgmt and see if everything looks.
If the Mike's image (vhd ) was corrupt - he should have got an error message to that effect.
Seems more likely the .vhd is OK - locating it was the issue.
If that is the case, the vhd can be mounted and an image made of it using a 3rd party app.
That 3rd party image should then restore fine.
