  • I also have been using the Oracle VM VirtualBox in order to open unbootable vhd files.

  • Thought I'd share this with the world as I've just had the weekend from hell, I threw everything but the kitchen sink at a corrupted VHD.

    The tool that cam to my rescue was Partition Guru - it's now under the umbrella of Eassos -

    You can download the trial for free to see if it works, then when it dangles your filenames tantalisingly in front of your eyes you then have to go to the site and pay $69 (£48) for the licence key - a small price to pay in this case, and I have a tool for future use.

    It recovered everything, including my sanity.

  • There's a tidbit in that article that made me <facepalm>...  The bit about mounting the vhd to the host to run the chkdsk...  I have wasted so much time mounting vhd's to other vms to extend partitions (pre-2008).  Thanks for the most useful thing I have learned today so far.

  • Very nice post, I would also recommend to upgrade to Windows Server 2012 and convert your virtual disks from VHD to VHDX. VHDX disks comes with a nice corruption protection just out of the box.

  • Let me second this one.  Just had a corrupted VHD last week and Kernel for VHD came through.  Very inexpensive as well--$200.

  • thanks for the article

    Now we need to find a way to prevent virtual disk corruption in the first place.

    Unfortunately it's still happening too often and it's puzzling me why...

Get this helpful application over here:

In past before using this tool, I tried many products to repair the corruption errors of my vhd file. But unfortunately they all are failed. Then I searched this application. It really helped me restore formatted VHD file data without any fault or data loss issue. I got this tool over here:

  • Having this feature in Windows eradicates the need to rely on third-party software to perform virtualization. Apart from the intended use of VHD files to act as a virtual hard disk of virtual machines, they can also be used for storage and backup. The advantage of having this format is the ease with which you can create the backup on a different hard disk (virtual) of the same machine with the option of portability.

  • I had a light bulb moment.

    Read a whole lot of PFN_LIST_CORRUPT forums. My one Hyper-V server crashed last week Tuesday night with a similar one. We got it up but loading/upgrading to Server 2016 and importing all the Hyper-V VMs back into the server.

    I have one VM displaying this error that could not be imported like the others. Been rebooting and trying to get into safemode. Then the lightbulb moment.

    I disconnected the second VHDX from the Hyper-V settings, booted the server, shutdown and added the second drive as an IDE and voila, server back up again.

    Kind Regards Jaco Smit
