When you try to perform a native boot from a virtual hard disk (VHD), the operation fails, and you receive the following Stop error message:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.
An initialization failure occurred while attempting to boot from a VHD.
The volume that hosts the VHD does not have enough free space to expand the VHD.
Stop: 0x00000136 (0x00000000, 0xc0000007f, 0x000000, 0x000000)
Note The second parameter of the bug check is "0xc000007f - STATUS_DISK_FULL."
This problem occurs when you use a VHD that has been configured as a dynamically expanding VHD. When you perform a native boot, a dynamically expanding VHD is expanded to its maximum size. This Stop error occurs because the volume that hosts the VHD does not have sufficient free space to expand the VHD past that boundary.
To resolve this issue, free up sufficient space on the volume that hosts the VHD so that the VHD can expand to its full size. If the dynamically expanding VHD is larger than the capacity of the volume, you must re-create the VHD as a fixed-size VHD at the appropriate size.
A native-boot VHD has the following dependencies:
