  1. But, what can I do if the host has a disk greater 127GB and I would like to use the VHD on Virtual PC? This tool will not work...

  2. Hi,

    Alternatively, you can use SCVMM 2008 R2 or Acronis product to do P2V for disk greater than 127GB.

  3. Well, the disk will remain the problem, as the size is above 127 GB - or not? will it work if I use VMM to resize the disk created by Disk2VHD from 200GB to 100GB?

    Thanks

  4. Hi,

    Virtual PC max supported VHD is 127 GB hard disk size. This is the limitation of Virtual PC.

    You can use VMM to reduce the size of the hard disk if it is using dynamic disk during P2V conversion. But from Disk2VHD VHD image files and use VMM to reduce the size, i need to test first before let you know the result.

    FYI,When you use Disk2VHD utilities, the VHD created is dynamic disk and normally has reduce to smaller size.

    Hope this info help you.
