    That is most likely the reason you can not boot from it, yes.

    Is there any solution to fix it or achieve the goal as using the old hard disk on windows 7?

    I think, before throwing in the towel, you might want to look at something like Virutal Box which also supports the .VHD format and see if it works any better although I haven't used it, so I wouldn't be of much help. I also don't understand why you couldn't install Virtual PC 2007 and run the microsoft updates twice, could it be that your current hardware is stopping you from using a software virtualization environment. Like I said earlier, I'm running it fine on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, with a dual core processor and 4 gigs of ram, but again I don't have the option to use hardware virtualization.
