I wonder if I could take my up to date Win 8 DP Image and use that to install to the VHD. This way I could expand my Win 7 drive back to the entire partition and delete the Win 8 DP partition without loosing the customizations I have already added to Win 8 DP. How would Imaging work if I installed Win 8 DP in a VHD? When I make my Image of my Win 7 drive would it also include the VHD in the Image so when I screw up again I can be back to where I was in as little as 10 to 15 minutes? Would that Image restore both Win 7 and Win 8 DP in VHD? Imaging is critically important to me. If these questions could be answered in the positive I would be willing to try this senario. But if I am unable to Image properly and include both Win 7 and Win 8DP, then I would be unwilling to try this at this time. Joe, a good starting point is windows8forums.com There are many observations recorded there already. Note: Sorry for the repeat post, I cannot figure out how to delete post #21. Perhaps a Mod could help here.
