I have a Windows 8 machine which I backed-up using the Control Panel -> Windows 7 File Recovery -> Create System Image. This produces a folder with a lot of .xml and a 2 .vhdx files. Is it possible to use the .vhdx files as a Virtual Machine in the Hyper-V Manager in Windows 8 Pro? If so, how?

If you continue to use original system AND have it's image as a virtual machine, you are most likely going against license agreement, so watch out. – Kitet Jun 2 '13 at 8:08
Yes I know, but this is a different license. Its from a laptop. – StefanHa Jun 3 '13 at 8:37
But isn't the laptop also in use? The point Kitet was trying to make is that each copy of Windows, whether physical or virtual, requires a separate license. – Karan Jun 4 '13 at 21:55
Yes, the laptop is still in use. Maybe its not to smart then. – StefanHa Jun 6 '13 at 5:43
