If your OS version is not supported for native boot, you're limited to boot via Grub4DOS & WinVBlock (or FiraDisk), which only works with fixed VHDs now - you can't undo anything, except of making a VHD copy beforehand. You still can boot such VHD inside Windows VPC connected as IDE drive, and enable Undo disk in its settings to accomplish similar task, but it won't be running on your native HW. Or, you can install EWF etc. onto OS on the VHD, and redirect writing temp files to your HD.

With all that trouble, i can just as well stick with installing and deleting of OS for testing purposes.
Will probably even be faster.
I wish OS manufacturers would spend as much time on enabling new features, as they spend on blocking or limiting of existing ones.

diskpart create vdisk file=c:ThinPC-dif1.vhd parent=c:ThinPC.vhd exit
Then, if BCDEdit commands sound too complex, use EasyBCD to add its boot entry to Windows Boot Menu of your boot disk - just make sure both Parent and Child VHDs are saved on that disk (or anywhere if you boot on the same PC) and weren't moved to another folder. That's all the trouble.

The tip that it would work by itself, if the vhd were create by diskmanagement, didn't work for me.
