Don't require me to "add an Azure disk" to make it usable with a VM
If I create a virtual machine using the Azure management portal, or the PowerShell module, I have to "add a VHD blob as a disk" before I can associate it with the VM as a OS disk or data disk.
Why is this extra step required? A VHD page blob is already a "disk," so why do I have to go through extra effort just to make the VHD blob able to be associated with a VM?
When creating an Azure VM, I should be able to specify a URI to a VHD blob as my OS disk, or data disk. Simple and done.
