    The status of this item has been moved back to Under Review. We initially planned to move to VHDX support as part of our support for HyperV Gen2 VMs, but we ended up using the VHD format for Gen2 VMs as well. Some aspects of the Azure Infrastructure do not cleanly support VHDX OS or data disks. So this feature is dependent on some of these internal services being updated which is an ongoing process.

    Sounds like Microsoft does not breach what they do. is VHDX bad and that is why Azure does not use it? Should we stop using VHDX on our on-premise Hyper-V ? I am curious why Azure does not support VHDX, is it because Azure runs on 2008 servers?
