Sunday, February 07, 2010 10:48 PMHi,I don't have any problem currently with WGA, I am just posting here to ask if this could interfere with WGA.I am currently running Windows 7 Pro RTM 32 bit.I wish to change from booting from a physical partition to a VHD file on another partition (because I am running out of space on my primary partition).I know that I can create a VHD file using Windows Backup and then use the command line to allow it to be booted. Will this cause WGA to change my status to non genuine?

To be honest, I do not know. I have very little experience with VHD. As far as I understand, it will probably need to be reactivated, but it shouldn't go into a Non-Genuine status.
On the Plus side, I don't see many VHD related Non-Genuine issues, so I assume it is likely to work.
Please be sure to reference the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) for your copy of Windows to ensure the Licensing allows for what you wish to do.
