    Portability for Hyper-V

    I am having a hard time figuring this out.

    Currently, I run a VS2005 system, but we are considering upgrading it to
    Hyper-V. In the event of a demonstration, and the network / Internet
    connection is down, I need my salesman to have a backup copy of the image on
    an external drive. Is it difficult (possible?) to export a Hyper-V image so
    that it could run on a VPC2007? Would it change anything if it was running
    on a Windows 7 machine?

    Would SCVMM make this change easier? Are there any other products which can
    help with this scenario?

    Thank you,

    CJM

    It's pretty difficult, and the changes would require reactivation as
    well. (if it's XP or above).

    The emulated hardware differences, the drivers from the
    addition/integration components, and the HAL differences all have to
    be accounted for.
