vhdx - converting generation 2 to generation 1

    Question

  • We need to convert a generation 2  vhdx to a generation 1  vhdx.

    How do we do this?  detailed steps?

    Once we have a gen 1 vhdx we need to convert it to a gen 1 vhd.

  • VHDXs don't have generations. Please rephrase the question. I can't tell if you want to switch a vdisk from a Generation 2 VM to a Generation 1 VM or if you want to convert a VHDX into a VHD or something else entirely.
