    Should work simply by applying Vista image. Create and format partition in Disk Manager, when done enter the following command in an elevated command prompt to apply image:

    dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:Z:\Sources\install.wim /index:1 /ApplyDir:W:\

    • /Z:\Sources\install.wim = Path to Vista install.wim file
    • /ApplyDir:W:\ = Partition where Vista will be installed (image applied)

    Now just add W:\Windows to boot menu.

    I've tested this today with various scenarios. Based on my tests, it works without issues on BIOS / MBR systems but if the computer is UEFI / GPT, Vista is not bootable even when image is applied to an additional MBR initialized disk.

    Short: applying Vista image as told works on BIOS based machines with MBR formatted disks. It does not work on UEFI based machines.

    Yes I have tried several scenarios since your reply last evening. Does not work for me. Maybe adding another drive and installing Vista with all other drives un plugged? Except I cannot easily disconnect the M.2 drive.
    Maybe just a pipe dream! LOL

    For UEFI you need to install Vista (x64) with SP1 (or 2) already included in your image.

    I used Vista SP 2 ISO multi edition in my tests. Applying image with DISM on a BIOS based machine with MBR formatting, it works like a piece of cake. Could not get it working on UEFI based machine, not even when installing on an additional MBR initialized disk.

    It can work, secure boot must be turned off

    I didn't get it working on UEFI / GPT system even with Secure Boot turned off.

    I thought that, too, tried then on both Hyper-V 2nd gen VM and a laptop with UEFI / GPT, disabling secure boot. Nothing. VMs showing just black screen, laptop going directly to recovery mode when Vista was selected from boot menu.

    On BIOS / MBR machines as well as 1st gen VMs, no issues. Works like a charm.
