Hi folks
great to clone W11 physical machine into HYPER-V VM of current system - saves a whole slew of installs -- and the VM is efficient as well.
That ViBoot process from a Macrium restore image -- Brilliant.

Wish I'd messed around with this before. !!!

I haven't played with it a whole bunch, but i think it's pretty cleaver. I know that Kari made a video tutorial showing how you can take a macrium backup of Windows 10, then boot the backup via viboot, upgrade it to a new release version of windows, shut off the vm, backup the vm, and then restore that VM backup back onto your host computer.

Actually, it is also a great way of testing if a backup image is sound ‐ better than verifying a backup.

It does not really do anything you could not actually do with a bootable iso of Reflect and any VM but it is a lot slicker.
