    I've created and attached a vdisk file using this command:

    Code:
    diskpart
    create vdisk file="C:\Windows 7.vhd" type=fixed maximum=15360
    sel vdisk file="C:\Windows 7.vhd"
    attach vdisk
    create partition primary
    active
    format fs=ntfs
    assign letter=X
    
    Then i've applied a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 image (D: is mounted ISO letter):
    Code:
    imagex /apply /check D:\sources\install.wim 4 X:
    
    But of course i need to make it bootable in order to use native VHD boot functionality. I remember i need to use bcdedit but i don't know the command to run. Any help would be much appreciated :hug2:
