    I have not been able to work out how to assign a specific drive letter - any idea?
    Create a DISKPART script like shown below. DISKPART scripts are normal text files with .txt extension:

    Code:
    create vdisk file=F:\W10PRO.vhdx maximum=51200 type=expandable
    attach vdisk
    create part primary
    format quick label="Windows"
    assign letter=W
    exit

    This would create a 50 GB dynamically expanding VHD file as MBR disk, label it W10PRO.vhdx and save it on root of drive F, mounting it on host as drive W.

    Run the script from your batch file with following command:

    diskpart /s DRIVE:\FOLDER\SCRIPT.TXT

    Only downside of this is that you cannot upgrade a vhd unless you attach it to hyper-v. To boot a vhd in hyper-V it also needs its own efi (I only do uefi) partition as well.
    This is why I always create my native boot VHDs as MBR disks (the above script makes MBR disk, not GPT). No need to create any system partitions for upgrade in Hyper-V. To upgrade it, I only need to create a Hyper-V VM using that disk, boot from W10 install media or PE and run BCDBOOT to create boot records, and boot to Windows.

    I never connect this VM to network, upgrading from ISO. This way WU will not get "confused", Windows on VHD now contains all your physical devices and drivers but when booted in Hyper-V, WU does not find those devices and keeps trying to update something that's not there.

    Yep, it's like moving from physical paper to digital paper. Very convenient and can easily be modified, copied and moved around the world.
    Well said

    Hi folks

    sounds like a great idea -- any links on how to boot into a vhd from start up -- a menu would also be nice so one could select which vhd to boot into. I remember some of this around at XP and W7 time but long since forgotten.
    Here you go Jimbo:

    Thanks - I wonder why mine fails. I tried the vss fix from Macrium Reflect. I guess I need to try a clean install again.

    I just saw your post and no one answered you yet:

    Read the first post, somewhere in the middle under "Troubleshooting improvements:
    Were still hard at work on this feature so its greyed out right now in Settings, but stay tuned for updates in future builds!
