Really nice!

 As the VHD format seems to be the default for Hyper-V and it is open source, is good to now that this is working smoothly.
 I'll try it!

Using blktap2 is possible to use vhd files, you just need to use the
tap:aio:vhd prefix in the config file, for example:

disk = [ 'tap:aio:vhd:/root/images/winxp.vhd,hda,w' ]
