    Win8.1 Pro | Win10TP Pro - boot to VHD

    There are more choices:

    Imaging with free Macrium - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Acronis WD edition

    both are free. I couldn't find a tutorial on Acronis, but lots of members use it so if you search the forums for Acronis, you'll find lots of information. Also be sure to look at the Related tutorials on any I send your way, there's always more stuff.

    I don't mean to send you off on a investigative task - I use the native System image and it works fine. Other members prefer the 3rd party imaging applications (there are some additional options offered in those).

    Thank you very much. I've already tried to do it with the native system image. Like you said, it's working great, so I guess I'll keep using that.
