Bump.

Anything for converting vhdx to physical disks yet?

I have a number of vhdx images and it's impractical to convert them to vhd. Being able to go straight from vhdx to physical disk would be a huge time saver, something my company might even be interested in buying from a reliable programmer.

Hello, how can I use vhd2disk from a bootable USB stick? 

I would like to re-image my main Windows drive using a VHD file I have on an external USB drive. I tried to copy your file to a Hiren's USB but the program doesn't run from it :(

Let me clarify:

That means I don't want to convert them to vhd.

I want to convert a vhdx to a physical disk.

Can anyone help Disk2vhd to run from the command line to copy all units minus the D :?
If I put Disk2vhd * c:\vhd\copia.vhd copy all units and just want to copy c: and the system partition (which has no name unit)
How you can add the unit system partition on the command line?

Thank you very much

I'm having a problem writing a VHD to my USB stick. It keeps saying I need to take the drive offline before it can write to it. And it provides me no method to do so in the program. Nor does it have any documentation that comes with it that tells me how to take the drive offline. Nor can I find info online on how to take it offline. All I can find are some things saying that in Windows you CAN'T take a drive offline (at least not using the Diskpart tool that comes with Windows). This leaves me to assume I'm supposed to use the tool in Linux (which maybe allows you to take a drive offline), but of course the actual program VHD2DISK is a Windows program, so using Linux as the OS for running the software is impossible.

And yes, I've spent HOURS using Google searching for how to take a drive offline in Windows. And I can't find ANY information on how to do it, leaving me to assume that it's impossible to do in Windows.

If it is actually possible, PLEASE post step-by-step directions on how to take a drive offline in Windows.

I have succeed to restore vhd to usb stick on win 7 by follow step:
1. Use win7 control panel/disk manage to check your usb stick number.
2. Use usbit tool to reset usb stick, you can download from http://www.alexpage.de/usb-image-tool/download/
3. Run disk2vhd.exe, my ver is 0.2 32bit.
4. If you get a message: "Can't write on physical drive. .....", when disk2vhd run a while, it's because windows detect a new usb disk, created by disk2vhd. I have try mountvol /E, but not working.  you must let diskvhd not to detect new disk by following step 5.
5. Use binary tool to find and change disk2vhd.exe 32bit ver 0.2:
    find:           8b f8 85 ff 74 1b 8b 4c 24 3c 83 44 24 20 04   
    change to: 8b f8 85 ff 90 90 8b 4c 24 3c 83 44 24 20 04
    then rerun step 2 to 4

good lock!
