Can I change the C-disk volume serial number on a virtual machine in Hyper-V? How can I do that?

The OS of the VM is Windows 2008 Server.

On any Windows system, you can change it using volume ID by Sysinternals (bought out by Microsoft):

You will need to reboot.

That utility from Sysinternals is changing Volume ID, but in this case is needed to change HDD Serial Number. So the question is still the same: How to change HDD Serial Number on Hyper-V virtual machine? – user123969 Mar 20 '12 at 20:29
    
@Mark: No it was the volume ID I was asking for. It is sometimes called Volume Serial Number (example: dir C: in dos prompt). I guess you are thinking of the physical serial number of the hard disk, but this is not what I need. – awe Jun 20 '12 at 8:47
