Import error on demo SharePoint 2010 VHD


I was trying to import SharePoint 2010 VHD file to my HyperV following the instruction from

http://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/SharePointSideshow/Setting-Up-a-SharePoint-Developer-Virtual-Machine but it failed.

 

This is what I did

1. Clicked on Import Virtual Machine

Import Virtual Machine, HyperV

 

2.  Selected “ Copy the virtual machine (Create a new unique ID) and browse to the location where I had the file

Import Virtual Machine, HyperV

I got error message saying ..

Import failed. Unable to find virtual machine import files under location ‘C:\HyperV\SharePoint2010\’. You can import a virtual machine only if you used Hyper-V to create and export it.

 

To resolve the problem, I went through new virtual machine creating wizard

http://virtualizesharepoint.com/2010/12/15/step-by-step-guide-to-create-window-hyper-v-virtual-machine-for-sharepoint-testing-environment/ and this worked.  Now I can start the SharePoint 2010 VHD
