In this video I go over the details on how to create a VHD file in Windows 7 and the code you need to upload it as a Page Blob in Windows Azure Storage.
I found the code that uploads the VHD to a Page Blob to Azure Storage in the cloud on Thomas Conte’s MSDN blog – thanks Thomas! Also, thanks to Neil Mackenzie on the Azure forums who helped me out with many issues I ran into.
