an iso is a virtual cd/dvd and a vhd is a virtual hard drive. I don't think your going to be able to do that.

In Virtual PC 2007 I found the option saying Install from .iso... but I got one error... Have a look at the following...I am not sure exactly what to do here?

It may help to take a step back for a bit and ask exactly what you're trying to achieve by converting it from one format to the other? You may be approaching something the wrong way

Did you mount your iso to the cd/dvd rom? I think that is all you have to do(I used the previous version of Virtual PC).

Here's two things I found on google.

Quote:
from the top of the Virtual PC 2007 window click on CD –> Capture ISO Image and select the Windows 7 beta ISO image
Quote:
It is important, you download 32-bit Windows 7 Beta even if you’re running on 64-bit hardware since Virtual PC 2007 only supports 32-bit guest operating systems. If you want to try the 64-bit edition in a virtualized environment, then use Hyper-V.

thanks all... I have achieved what I was trying to do..
I was trying to load up either .iso to virtual pc or convert .iso to .vhd to load it up on Virtual PC 2007 and I have managed to load .iso in virtual pc...

Yes, I tried 64 BIT Windows 7 RC but it didn't work so I tried 32 BIT and it worked fine... but it's running slow on virtual pc even though I have given 2 GB virtual RAM to it...!

The speed can also be affected by the actual computer you are using.
