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.
