    Which drive did you select to put the VHD on? You might not be able to do this on a Logical partition.

    Son,

    I noticed that that partition was formated with FAT32 instead of NTFS. That most likely is the issue. See if you can create a Fixed size VHD instead of a Dynamically expanding VHD. If not, then test to see if you can create it on a NTFS partition instead.

    Hope this helps.

    You're welcome Son. Were you able to get the VHD file created?

    I wonder whether its worth moving pagefile to a vhd since it could run faster?

    Interesting Nick. I have never tried having a page file on a VHD like that before. I would have though that it may be a bit slower than on a normal drive or partition though.

    I must be missing something, because I've created a VHD to install 7264 onto but it doesn't show up in the installation and I have to keep re-attaching the drive after each boot.

    It does exist:

    I doubt it makes any difference, but it's created on my E:\ drive.

    How can I make it appear after each boot (without having to re-attach) or at least make it visible during 7264's installation?

    Would I be better off just deleting the current VHD and creating a new one during installation with "
    create vdisk file=C:\VHD-Windows7.vhd maximum=40960"?

    Since you will be installing the 7264 build on the VHD, you might use that option below instead so that it will also appear in your boot menu easier as well. :)
