Leap Frog will assist you in creating a bootable Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) for native Windows deployment with your Windows XP thru Windows 10 (Desktop and Server) or Mac OS X Snow Leopard machine. The VHD can be used as the running operating system on supported hardware without a virtual machine or hypervisor. This provides an excellent way for end users who wish to utilize the VHD technology and setup a multi-boot environment in Windows without having to "Upgrade" or repartition the hard disk.

Portlock Leap Frog has been developed and designed to provide end users the ability to utilize the new VHD-boot capabilities in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 (and later versions) in one easy to use wizard. Portlock Leap Frog eliminates steps for VHD-boot setup such as the need to first boot the system to the Windows install DVD as well as the use of tools such as the "Disk Management" console and command prompt tools such as "Diskpart" and "BCDedit."

Portlock Leap Frog includes Windows 10 (WinPE) based boot CDs (32-bit and 64-bit) for booting systems to repair boot problems, install drivers, etc. You can even create a system with no operating system installed that only boots from VHDs.

For our NetWare customers, install Windows 10 into a VHD so that you can dual boot Windows XP and Windows 10 without repartitioning your system.

Device Driver Support

Device Driver Support
Portlock Device Manager supports displaying device drivers installed in a bootable VHD. This can be an essential tool to figure out what hardware your Windows installation supports.
