we have fixed the windows 2000 bug, will be available in next update.

Windows 2000 will have some limits on file system, you have to make sure ntfs.sys inside windows 2000 can recognize the volumes where you place vboot, iso and vhd files. This may enforce you to have a windows 2000 partition, then you place files there.

Hi vboot team.

Just wondering if you had any success with the windows xp wim to vhd STOP c000021a error?
Did you test the wim file I sent or should I just post instructions how to make it for you instead?

Cheers

downloaded the wim file. Is this normal? when I boot the wim prepared vhd, it modifies the host disk signature, and I had to manually restore the old signature in order to boot my host.

We've been working on the win2k bug, will now start to look into this bug.

That is strange.

I know is the wim file works ok using imagex to a raw harddisk and it works with vboot 1.1. I have tested win7 x64 with wim to vhd in vboot 2.0 and it works, I noticed it says the same autochk error as windows xp(on first boot), but it still manages to work.

Can you comment on the hide command? I am trying to make this work properly but I don't understand what d: or c: means. My hard disk has 2 partitions one is 50GB where vboot and vhd files are stored, the other is the remaining space with flat files of my work.

I have tried
hide="C:"
hide="D:"
hide="C:,D:"
In none of the cases did it hide the vboot partition (same partition where vhd is hosted) so I keep using parttool, using

parttool (hd0,1) hidden+
vboot harddisk="(hd0,1)/vhd/win7x64.vhd"

(1) make sure you have installed vbootfs.sys to the vhd. It's automatically installed if you use the standard way as described by vboot instructions.

(2) C: D: is the drive letter when you boot to the vhd without "hide" option.

(3) you may want to try hide="0" option which hides the whole disk, you can still save to the vhd file.
