By default, when you create a virtual machine on your Hyper-V server, the wizard doesn't give you a choice and will create a dynamic virtual hard disk in VHDX format.
However, if you want to use another type of allocation (fixed, dynamic, ...) or another format (VHD / VHDX), you will need to create the virtual hard disk manually from the Hyper-V Manager.
To do this, select the Hyper-V server on which you want to create your virtual hard disk and click "New -> Hard Disk" (in the right column).
The New Virtual Hard Disk Wizard appears.
Choose the disk format to use :
Since Windows Server 2016, a new virtual hard disk format has appeared : VHD Set.
This new "VHD Set" format allows you to create shared virtual hard disks that can :
Important : as specified by this wizard, this format is only supported by Windows 10 and later guest operating systems.
Select the type of disk to use :
Provide a name for your virtual hard disk.
Note : by default, the virtual hard disk will be stored in the default folder specified in the settings of your Hyper-V server.
Specify the maximum size that the virtual hard disk can take.
By default : the wizard offers a size of 127 GB.
A summary is displayed.
To get started, open the settings of the virtual machine to which you want link this virtual hard disk.
Select "Virtual hard disk" and click Browse.
Select the previously created virtual hard disk and click Open.
Now, don't forget to partition it into the guest operating system so you can store data there.
