Or if you prefer using the command prompt:

Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.14393.0

On computer: ZPC

DISKPART> select vdisk file="C:\Users\zirkoni\VirtualBox VMs\FreeDOS\FreeDOS.vhd"

DiskPart successfully selected the virtual disk file.

DISKPART> attach vdisk

  100 percent completed

DiskPart successfully attached the virtual disk file.

you do have a good point there... this is just the method i've always used, so i just went with it.

you can also get 7-ZIP on Mac and Ubuntu, so this guide could also be followed using the UNIX paths.

can I ask for your permission to make a guide using the diskpart method you mentioned?
