Dear community
If you are using VHD booting by Grub or Windows,
you might need a tool to create and manage VHD files.
The VHD-Manager is designed to do this job for you.

Fields of application: (in short form)
Create VHD.
Create Partition.
Mount VHD to edit.
Merge differencing VHD´s.
Resize VHD.

All VHD related processes should be handled.
The VHD-Manager uses DISKPART commandline to get things done.

The current version is tested on Win7x64 lang=de.
If you have success with other language, please leave a little comment.
T.

Looks useful!  :good: 

 

A few observations...

 

'Diskmanagement' would look better as 'Disk Management'

In Create Partition, Compress is ticked by default, would grub4dos work if the VHD was made with Compress ticked? Better for default to be unticked?

In ReSize tab Disk has li in the first box. What does this mean? Also it says Disk 0  Online 29 - what does 29 mean (disk is 298GB), Disk 1 (vhd) says 15 (disk created was 150MB)

If I select Disk 1 (the vhd) and click List Disk, disk 0 is listed.

Besides the obvious usefulness for this nice utility :thumbsup: I guess it should be specified somewhere how grub4dos does not support any kind of .vhd image which is not a "static" one i.e. a RAW image with the "Connectix descriptive sector" appended.

In other words, grub4dos supports only RAW images and coincidentally a "static" .vhd is actually a RAW image with a sector appended to it (which is ignored by grub4dos).

To easily convert between RAW disk image and .vhd "static" (if needed), there are a few tools on the board:

Clonedisk

http://reboot.pro/to...8480-clonedisk/

is a "general" tool to make images, copy disks/partitions, and a few other functions, including bi-directional RAW<-->VHD conversion.

This other command line tool:

VHD2IMG

http://reboot.pro/to...mand-line-tool/

allows to convert from "static" OR "dinamic" VHD to RAW.

And this other command line tool:

RAW2VHD

http://reboot.pro/to...ges/#entry83781

that allows to convert from RAW to VHD ("static")

 

:cheers:

Wonko

Hi

I recently updated to version 130307.

Removed obsolete controls.

Should work language independent.

Thanks for suggestions.

T.
