Windows 7: Repair vhd file

02 Sep 2013   #1

Repair vhd file


I gave my company my laptop for an unrelated problem, and they resolved it by giving me a fresh new windows copy.
So I asked them to give me the .vhd file to get back my work, but now I can't really use it and get an error message (Impossible to start win xp mode due to an error from the virtual drive ...).

So I've tried many tricks found on the web but none worked.
For instance, if I try to add my .vhd in the parameter menu (Hard drive 1/2/3), it says that the file is not a valid virtual hard drive.
This means that I can't merge it for example.

I've tried to make a new instal of xp mode as well, and replaced the vhd/vmc files, didn't work as well.

I don't need to just take back my old work (like just files/folders), this is a whole environment which might take me a week to reconfigure (time I really don't have).

So any idea to really repair the file to make it work again would be more than welcome.
