Is there a way to take a Virtual PC VM and convert it so that it can be opened with MS Hyper-V?

You should be able to create a new VM in Hyper-V (make sure to match the memory of your Virtual PC VM) and attach the .vhd to the IDE controller.

While looking for an article regarding this procedure (which I just can't find), at least I found this article named Migrating a virtual machine from Virtual PC to Hyper-V and back, which I hope will serve you just as well.
