I am trying to connect/add a virtual machine (SQL-02.vhd file) which was created using HyperV Windows Server 2008 machine on a Windows 7 Machine. I have windows 7 Pro 64bit machine. I installed virtual PC (Windows Virtual PC) on the same machine from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx.
Using Windows Virtual PC I created a virtual machine, assigned a name and location “C:\Virtual Machine” and in add a virtual machine window I selected “use an existing virtual hard disk” option and pointed it to SQL-02.vhd.
The virtual machine is created but the problem is it does not start and keeps on restarting in a loop.
Could anyone assist me how to figure it out? Or if I am missing anything?

I believe that if you go to the page where you downloaded the file, you will find the following information under System Requirements:
Supported operating systems: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise
Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V is required to use this virtual machine
In addition to the system requirements for Windows Server 2008 as described in the release notes, a 64-bit system with hardware-assisted virtualization enabled and data execution prevention (DEP) is required.
It is also recommended to ensure that you have a clean install of x64 edition of Windows Server 2008 to be able to use the Hyper-V technology.
HyperV will not and does not run on Windows 7. You must have Windows Server 2008 to run HyperV.
It helps to read the entire page when you download software to find out what the System Requirements are.

There are a lot of limits for using Hyper-V VHDs under VPC. The 2 main ones are VPC does not support 64bit OSes and it cannot use a VHD that is over 127GB.
Also, going "backwards" from Hyper-V to WVPC will most likely require a HAL change for the VM OS, so you're looking at a repair installation of the OS.

Using VirtualBox will allow you to run the VHD on a Windows 7 x64 machine really well. You'll have to set the drive to run on the IDE rather than the SATA controller to get past the boot issue though.
