Q. Can I boot from a VHD created by Windows Server Backup?

A. Windows Server Backup in Windows Server 2008 later creates a VHD file, but the VHD file isn't bootable by a VM or from hardware. If you want to create a VHD copy of a computer and boot from it, use Disk2VHD, which creates a VHD that's fully bootable.
