Setting up a Windows 7 with Boot from VHD option

After finding out that VMWare and Windows Phone 7.1 beta emulator were not very likely to work together correctly – I decided to explore the Boot from VHD option in Windows 7 so that I would create a second “portable and bootable” partition using a VHD file which would contain a clean version of Windows 7.

There is a lot of interesting guidance out there but finally I decided to not go for this option give the fact that I did not want to “generalize” my own portable to build the custom Windows 7  wim image. It would be interesting if a Windows 7 “install.wim” would also be provided as a download on MSDN or TechNet.

Maybe something for when I have more time on my hands:
