Acronis backups (.tib files) of disks or partitions can be converted to virtual hard disks (.vhd(x) files). You can run a converted .(x) file as a virtual machine.

A virtual machine is an emulation of an operating system, meaning that you will be able to run a second operating system while you are still working in the main operating system installed on your computer. For example, you have Windows 10, but want to use an old program that cannot work in Windows 10 and only works in Windows 7, but you do not want to keep the old Window 7 just for this one program. In this case, you can create a backup of the old system, convert this backup to a .vhd(x) file, and then create a virtual machine containing your old Windows 7.

  2. In the left pane of the Hyper-V Manager, select your machine's name.
  3. Under Actions, click New and select Virtual Machine.
  4. In the next step, specify a name for the new virtual machine and its location.
  5. Choose the type of generation you would prefer to use. If the original operating system is Windows 7 or Windows XP, you need to select Generation 1; otherwise you can select Generation 2. This detailed comparison helps you decide between Generation 1 and Generation 2.
  6. In the next steps, review memory and network settings. You can adjust them depending on your needs. If you have limited physical RAM installed (2GB or less) clear the Use Dynamic Memory for this virtual machine check box. You can configure network settings later.
  7. On the Connect Virtual Hard Disk screen, select Use existing virtual hard disk and select the .vhd(x) file which your backup has been converted to.

Now you can use the virtual machine.

If your virtual machine is Windows 7, disable secure boot, otherwise the VM cannot start. In virtual machine settings, navigate to the Security tab and clear the Enable secure boot check box.
If your virtual machine is Windows XP, add a legacy network adapter to the virtual machine, because it cannot recognize Hyper-V's default virtual network adapter. In virtual machine settings, navigate to Add Hardware, select Legacy Network Addapter and click Add.
