I don't think this feature is working, because I went to "Create VHD" and put it on the MBR, and put in my Windows 2008 disk - didn't see anything. Came back, and it was gone

That is a good question: can one run an OS from a VHD in this way?

Eventually Yes, This will become the builtin VirutalPC software that allows windows7 to boot and manager separate VHDs...However I believe its unfinished so that functionality is disabled until its ready
