    migrate Hyper-V virtual machine to virtual server/virtual PC 2007

    Has anyone attempted to take a virtual machine client created on WS2008
    (Hyper-V) and run it on either Windows Server virtual server or Virtual PC
    2007? I have made several attempts but all have failed so far.
    thanks

    Yes, several people have reported doing this (though I can't think why
    anybody would!)

    The process is pretty similar to moving from VPC/Virtual Server to
    Hyper-V. The first thing to do is to remove the Integration Components.
    (Remove the virtual machine additions going the other way). This must be
    done before you shut down the vm. You can't do it after you move to the
    other system.

    Now copy the vhd file and rename it, and create a new vm using the
    copied vhd. The vhd structure is compatible between VPC and Hyper-V, the vmc
    structure is not.
