Windows Server 2008 R2 Cool New Features – Cool Feature 2

Posted by Christian Dam on November 13, 2008


We can now add VHD’s directly in Disk Management:

cnf02

Select More Actions -> Attach VHD

cnf02-1

Browse for the VHD

cnf02-2

The device drivers are installed

cnf02-3     cnf02-4

The VHD now appears as a drive

cnf02-5

At TechEd Emea 2008 it was mentioned that it will be possible to boot a physical server from a VHD but I cannot see that option here. It may because I run this WS08R2 inside Hyper-V.
