Install and configure Personal vDisk

In this tutorial I start from having already a vdisk with a VDA  5.6 version which I remove it and used the one from the Xendesktop 7.1 version for my PvD

So first step was to mount my vdisk to update device in read\write mode and uninstall the old VDA . second step was to copy the entire source of the Xendesktop 7.1 on the vdisk and launch the autorun.  The printscreens are from a french win7  🙂


start the wizard

Check on créer une image principale.  Press on  suivant


Check  non,installer VDA standard. Press suivant. I didn’t  need that HDX features

I add manually the controllers and test their connections and  pass to next phase



Thick the personal vdisk box and go on the next
