How to boot from VHD

Lukas BeranLukas Beran

VHD boot is a simple and secure way how to have more operating systems on one computer without virtualization. But most of people don’t know about this option or are afraid of this option, yet it is very simple.

For the following approach you need ImageX, which is a part of Windows Automated Installation kit (WAIK) for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2, or new Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 8/Windows Server 2012 and newer.

This guide is for Windows 7 or newer.

This is a step-by-step guide for beginners with just an elementary knowledge.

If you want to remove the VHD from the boot option, you can simply remove the record from boot options in System Configuration (msconfig).

My primary focus is the security of identities, devices and data in the cloud using Microsoft services, technologies and tools.
