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:


Select More Actions -> Attach VHD


Browse for the VHD


The device drivers are installed

cnf02-3     cnf02-4

The VHD now appears as a drive


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.
