Just saw something exciting at plop.at.
The new Plop VHD Loader!

VHD loading for Windows, Linux and even DOS.

At the moment it's just beta software, but given enough demand, i'm sure it will be developed further.

In my recollection, "VHD" wasn't in common vocabulary around these parts until Microsoft allowed you to boot from them. It's too bad that most people started using it to mean a sector-by-sector disk image, instead of the actual fancier file-format which Microsoft allowed. :wheelchair:

But anyway, the product discussed in this thread is actually using the fancier thing, which I think is worth mentioning. Otherwise, GRUB4DOS can already do the sector-by-sector disk image, as we all know. :)

I might add that my WvBootDD project (an NTLDR NtBootDD "driver") was actually started with this goal in mind but only for Windows, so this PLoP product is definitely cool!

Too bad it only supports FAT32 drives too, this would limit your VHD's to less than 4GB.
