  1. DualBoot Windows 10 with native boot on vhdx file.


    hello everyone,

    I need to try cortana reminders on the 2004 version.

    I have vmware but I would like to try to install on my hardware if possible with a dual boot.

    I would like to use native boot on vhdx file.

    I have seen tutorials and I have partially prepared a dos batch script to automate everything but I am missing the entry phase in the BCD.

    But I would like to check again if everything is okay also the initial part.

    Where do you recommend starting from?

    :)

    Native boot virtual machine failed to boot

    Hello,

    I have 2 SSDs in my laptop and each one has Windows 10 installed. I use dualboot menu to select which one to boot.

    Now I am trying to use native boot of vhdx. What I did are:

    1. use disk2vhd to create vhdx file, select the 2nd SSD(D: drive) and created Windows2.vhdx under folder \VM in the root of 1st SSD.

    After VHDX file created, I run disk management and attach the virtual disk, I noticed there are three partition EFI/SYSTEM/Recovery in the VHD.

    then I detached the drive.

    2. use bcdicex64 to add an boot entry "Windows 10 VM" to boot from vhd.

    3. Reboot the computer, select Windows 10 VM, Windows starts to load, after a few seconds, I got STOP error "critical_process_died".

    I tried the following after boot failure:

    Boot to 1st SSD, attach vhdx in disk management, delete EFI partition and recovery partition. detach vhdx, reboot the computer and choose Windows 10 VM. This time the computer keeps rebooting when the windows starts to load without giving STOP error.

    Booting to safemode results same problem.

    How to fix the problem? Thanks

    Win 10.VHDX native boot....with linux as well?

    Wondering if this is at all possible. I use Hyper-V and am very impressed of the native boot performance, would it be at all possible to native boot a linux virtual drive.

    For example, in UEFI I have Windows 10 on my physical drive as option 1, and windows 10 on a virtual drive as option 2. Can I also have the 3rd option of linux as a VHDX?

  4. DualBoot Windows 10 with native boot on vhdx file.

    An App (VMRC 9) Installation error on windows 10 machines with a VHDX native boot

    Hi, everyone.

    I have some problem when installing VMRC 9. I looked up other threads from VMware Community and did everything with no luck. Mine might have different issue which seems to be related to Windows 10 itself rather
    than the app.

    Whenever I tried to install VMRC 9 on my Windows 10 machines with native VHD boot setting, I faced the same error msg as follows;


    DualBoot Windows 10 with native boot on vhdx file. Capture.png


    It is quite weird. I have never encountered this kind of problem when installing any applications. I have been a big fan of Windows VHD native boot feature for several years..

    As I experienced a success with one with Windows 10 1 Year Update Home VHDX installed by chance, I decided to pay the price of a clean installation, but ended up with a failure again.

    Here is what I have tried on 4 different devices.



    Windows 10 Pro
    VHDX
    Failed

    Windows 10 1 Year Update Pro
    VHDX
    Failed

    Windows 10 1 Year Update Home
    VHDX
    Succeeded

    Windows 10 1 Year Update Home
    Native
    Succeeded



    Any suggestion?

    Thanks.
