    attached vhd image


    once the image is attached is it possible to boot it within win7 or do you still need another prog to do that

    Does it show up at boot to select the OS (VHD)?

    Hello Brad,

    This is a PM I got from Steven on this. It looks like it is not stable yet in Windows 7.

    PM by Steven said:
    Its a hit and miss using vhd booting at the moment, I figured out that its nearly impossible to configure the vhd correctly to boot with windows 7 at the moment..I guess the public beta will have a more stable and better support for this
