Convert your custom or default WIM file to VHD/ VHDX format

Convert-WindowsImage.ps1 - WIM2VHD for Windows 8!

Convert-WindowsImage is the new version of WIM2VHD designed specifically for Windows 8.
Completely rewritten in PowerShell, this command-line tool allows you to rapidly create sysprepped VHD and VHDX images from setup media for Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 and Windows 8/Server 2012

Steps to convert WIM to VHD/VHDX
  1. Open Windows Power shell with Admin privileged and run the following command
Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
  1. Move into the directory where your Script is stored and run the following command
.\Convert-WindowsImage.ps1 –ShowUI .

  1. This will launch UI and hence fill the data required accordingly as shown

  1. After filling the Data click on Make my VHD and the VHD will be ready in 5-10 min


  1. There is noticeably much to experience this. I believe you made several well points in Features as well. http://www.lowhosting.com/justhost-review/

  2. The UI doesn't launch. I followed the instructions. It's nearly the same instructions as several other sites except that Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted is new. This would be extremely helpful for I only have a highly customized .wim that needs to be updated. I'm using Win Svr 2012 R2 and need to update a Win 7 x86 .wim.
