VHD and VHDX
#3
Thanks!

I've been toying with Rufus 2.2 with their UEFI_NTFS bootloader. I've been using the TechNet Convert-WindowsImage tool to make the VHDX files.

I've made two vhdx images, one with BCD in the VHD (for VMs) and one without (NativeBoot).

Convert-WindowsImage -SourcePath c:\Build\en_windows_8_1_pro_vl_x64_dvd_2971948.iso -BCDinVHD VirtualMachine -Edition Professional  -SizeBytes 55GB -VHDFormat VHDX -VHDPartitionStyle GPT -VHDPath C:\Build\Win81ProVM.vhdx -VHDType Dynamic

Convert-WindowsImage -SourcePath c:\Build\en_windows_8_1_pro_vl_x64_dvd_2971948.iso -BCDinVHD NativeBoot -Edition Professional  -SizeBytes 55GB -VHDFormat VHDX -VHDPartitionStyle GPT -VHDPath C:\Build\Win81ProNB.vhdx -VHDType Dynamic

I' trying to figure out a way to boot BCD bootmgr direct from the first NTFS partition so I can select one of the above VHDX installs.  Also trying to make this all work on an SD-card in my 2015 MacBook Pro (removable storage).  Little sucess so far!
