Mounting .vhdp files??
Authored by: victory on Apr 27, '06 11:38:11AM

Yes, the Finder can mount some .vphd files, but only ones that are FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS formatted (I'm not absolutely sure of this, but I'm willing to bet that NTFS support is Read-Only) and are not attached to VM that is currently running or in a saved state.

While I've never worked with Parallels Workstation, I've had great success moving OS installations between VPC virtual machines using Norton Ghost booting under DOS. It's a bit kludgey since you have to go through the trouble of mounting a secondary HD volume to hold the resulting ghost image file, but it works quite when the guest OS is Windows-based.
