we just released VBoot today,

VBoot Overview

It can boot any Windows starting from Windows 2000, any service packs, any editions from VHD, VMDK, VDI and Raw formats.

Differencing and Snapshots are supported. Extremely easy to take a snapshot and restore.

It supports installing Windows from iso files. You simply take an iso file, then install it to a virtual disk file, then boot it using VBoot Loader.
