    Hi Everyone,

    I follow the link below and use Surface pro 3 to boot to VHD(Native Boot).

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh825691.aspx

    The OS of my VHD is Windows 8.1 Embedded Enterprise x64.

    First, I put my VHD file in C:\. Then I booted up a USB with WinPE(x64) on it and use the following commands to attach my VHD.

    • diskpart
      select vdisk file=C:\windows.vhdx
      attach vdisk
      list volume
      select volume <volume_number_of_attached_VHD>
      assign letter=v
      exit

      cd v:\windows\system32
      bcdboot v:\windows


    Unfortunately, I got the error screen when I reboot my Surface pro 3.

    Does Surface pro 3 support native vhd boot?

    Or does I miss anything necessary?

    Thanks.

    The C drive must be unencrypted.

    Yes, I have unencrypted the C drive so I could access the VHD file in it.

    There's a thread in windows 10 forum on it... different process but you may see something there to help.
