However, VHDs can also be mounted so they act like real hard drives; when mounted they appears to Windows as a real physical hard drive, and you can put files on, edit files on it, remove files on it, etc. Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008, have a new feature which allows users to mount VHDs without needing to use third party software.

While Windows 7 adds the ability to create and mount them natively (and theoretically ISO files as well), to do any of those actions you must use either DISKPART in command line or the Disk Management Console (DMC); and to use either you have to have Administrator rights. Unfortunately, the only way to fix the Administrator rights problem is to turn off the UAC, a very bad idea. However, there are ways to mount VHDs without using DISKPART or DMC. The first way is by using program called VHD Attach. Mount and Unmount a VHD File in Windows Explorer via a Right-Click. Virtualization has become an incredibly powerful and flexible way to deploy environments.

Mount and Unmount a VHD File in Windows Explorer via a Right-Click

So much in fact that Microsoft has integrated the ability to attach virtual hard drive (VHD) files as physical disks in the Windows Disk Management tool. This process is easy enough to do manually but if you attach VHD files often then we have a solution which enables you to mount and unmount VHD files with a single click. Simply add our Mount VHD and Unmount VHD scripts to your Send To menu. Now whenever you right click on a VHD file, go to the Send To > Mount VHD command. Note: This action will require administrator rights, you may receive a UAC elevated permission prompt. After the script has run, the VHD is available in Disk Managment and Windows Explorer and can be accessed just like a physical disk. When you are finished using the VHD, simply unmount it by right clicking on the VHD file and going Send To > Unmount VHD. The Scripts. Q&A: Interview Questions.

Migrating OS X VMs to a VMware ESXi server. I’ve started using ESXi servers more and more for hosting my test Macs, both here and at work.

Migrating OS X VMs to a VMware ESXi server

As part of that, I’ve found it to be considerably easier for me to build the VM inside of VMware Fusion on my Mac and move it to ESXi, then build it from scratch on my ESXi server. That said, I’ve found the process for moving OS X VMs has not been straightforward. When I first tried moving 10.8.x VMs, I tried both VMware’s OVF Tool and VMware’s Standalone Converter, but neither initially appeared to provide me with the ability to transfer working OS X 10.8.x VMs. In the end, I was able to find a way to use VMware’s Standalone Converter to transfer 10.8.x VMs, but the process involves some extra steps on the ESXi server’s end. The process I’ve developed involves using a Windows 7 VM running inside of VMware Fusion, with the VMware Standalone Converter application installed.
