Deployment from virtual disk Format vhdx fails with error “Failed to Open Image”. To work around this issue use master image creator
This article applies to:
- Acronis Snap Deploy 4
If you try using a virtual disk from type vhdx as source for your deployment, you receive this error message:
Failed to Open Image
(!) Renaming your file from extension .vhdx to .vhd does not change this behavior.
Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 introduced a new format for virtual hard drive. It has the extension *.vhdx. Currently Acronis Snap Deploy 4 cannot use this file as source for deployment.
To work around this issue, please use the Acronis Master Image Creator to create a image from the machine.
