Use the Microsoft Tool: Disk2vhd: to convert you’re current Windows installation to a VHD.

Copy the created disk to you’re USB disk on E:\VHD

Open an elevated  command prompt right click C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe and click on “Run as administrator


Type: bcdedit /copy {current} /d “New VHD Description”

This will return a GUID in my case {7dc00261-ee87-11de-8bd6-df41f0c5a8db} that must be used in the following statements:

bcdedit /set {7dc00261-ee87-11de-8bd6-df41f0c5a8db} device vhd=[E:]\VHD\newvhd.vhd

bcdedit /set {7dc00261-ee87-11de-8bd6-df41f0c5a8db} osdevice vhd=[E:]\VHD\newvhd.vhd

bcdedit /set {7dc00261-ee87-11de-8bd6-df41f0c5a8db} detecthal on

You can replace [E:]\VHD\newvhd.vhd with the path and name of your VHD.

After rebooting you should se the entry: “New VDH Description”

If you want to delete the entry enter:

bcdedit /delete {GUID} /cleanup
