Mounting .vhdp files??
Authored by: _merlin on Apr 26, '06 06:46:43PM

I've done it using Acronis TrueImage, although I wouldn't go and spend the money on TrueImage for a one-off. You could probably use other imaging utilities, too.

1. Share a folder on the Mac with SMB (I used the SharePoints utility for this)
2. Boot VPC with TrueImage CD image and create an image of the virtual hard disk on the SMB share.
4. Boot Parallels with TrueImage CD image and restore image from SMB share.

Note that you can't move a Windows installation in this fashion. Windows tailors itself for the (possibly virtual) machine it's installed on, and won't necessarily work on different (possibly virtual) hardware. It is useful for moving an NTFS data disk, though.
