One of the best features that I have always liked in Windows 7 is its native VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) support. Into Windows has already covered how to dual boot from VHD using Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2, how to create, attach, and detach a virtual hard disk VHD in Windows 7 guides.
In addition to the above feature, Windows 7 also supports VHD boot. Although creating a VHD is pretty easy, attaching or removing a VHD to and from boot menu requires some basic command knowledge.
To make all these tasks even simpler, I am introducing you to a free tool that has been released exclusively for Windows 7. The tool name is VHD Mount. VHD Mount lets you mount, un-mount, add VHD to boot menu, and remove VHD from boot menu. Obviously, you need to have an OS installed on VHD to make it bootable.
Once you download and install this freeware, simply double-click on a VHD to mount it. To un-mount a VHD, again right-click on the VHD and select Un-mount option. You can also add or remove a VHD from boot menu by right-clicking on the VHD and then selecting the appropriate option.
So, if you like Windows 7’s VHD tool, you must have this tool to simplify VHD related works.
