Hi Patrick,

Yes, you will be able to. You will need to create the virtual machine again, but when you get to step 5 in the tutorial below, select "Use an existing virtual hard disk" option instead. Next, select the VHD file for the same virtual machine.

Hi Shawn,

Thanks for the accurate answer, it checks out at this end.

When I get my SATA controller card will I be able to move the virtual machine to an external SATA drive and do this without losing the activation status?

Yes, you can move the VHD file for the virtual machine to the external SATA drive. Afterwards, you would need to change the virtual machine's settings to point the Hard Disk 1 to the new location of the VHD though.
