Windows 7: Attempting to install to VHD – an odyssey
One of the things I am most impressed about with Windows 7 is the latest Media Center. As a result, I wanted to install the build 7000 beta release onto our media PC at home. However, I already have that working nicely with Windows Vista and, frankly, I didn’t want to have to repeatedly reinstall if the beta caused problems.
The solution seemed simple: install Windows 7 to a VHD file sitting on the Vista disk.
