I need to convert a VHD file (Hyper-V VM) to the Linux raw format. Is there a tool which can do this which is graphical?

Why must it be graphical?

qemu-img convert -f vpc -O raw something.vhd something.raw

(Edit: Fixed -f vhd to -f vpc.)

    It doesn't work in QEMU on MacOS; the right way is to use vpc instead of vhd Nov 9, 2013 at 11:24
  • on the linux there is no vhd format, use vhd instead

The correct format is:

qemu-img convert -f vpc -O raw lamp-3-x86.vhd lamp.raw

From the manpages of qemu-img:

qemu-img convert -f vpc -O raw lamp-3-x86.vhd lamp.raw
vpc – VirtualPC compatible image format (VHD).

  • Yup, that's what the man page says.
