Ghost, shipped with Deployment Solution 7.1 and later, is capable to create / convert to VHD images.

You can convert a ".GHO" file to a ".VHD" file using ghost32.exe, ghost64.exe or the Linux version of ghost.exe.
To convert the file, run ghost with the following command line:


Now you can open Hyper-V Manager Snap-in

select New > Virtual Machine...

Open the New Virtual Machine Wizard, click Next

Allocate the amount of memory, click Next

Configure Networking, click Next

Select "Use an existing virtual disk" and Browse to the location where you stored your newly converted .VHD image

If the static IP cannot be assigned manually and comes with an error : element not found.

Compile the boot package with necessary NIC drivers .

Reboot the client computer and quit out of Ghost.

Please run the commands in command prompt in order :

netcfg -winpe
wpeutil InitializeNetwork
netsh interface ipv4 set address "Local Area connection" static <IP address>  <subnet mask>  <gateway> 1

It is a driver issue. Please add the NIC driver.
