On page 44, at the top, states that dynamically expanding VHDs are limited to 127GB. The note on the page as well states the IDE VHDs are limited to 127GB. These statements are false according to - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winserverhyperv/thread/f57 84096-808b-4a66-9bfd-fecb0a0946cc

Note from the Author or Editor:
The information on Page 44 that indicates that dynamically expanding VHDs and IDE-connected VHDs cannot exceed 127 GB is incorrect. The limitation applied in Virtual Server 2005. In Hyper-V, VHDs are limited to 2040 GB regardless of the virtual disk interface.

first 3 paragraph

at page 588, at first lane it reads : following are some examples of how to use the command-line parameters for the "Add-VMNewHardDisk" Function...... but as we see the second and third commands are "New-VHD" and not "Add-VMNewHardDisk" !

Note from the Author or Editor:
In the second and third commands listed at the top of page 588, the "New-VHD" command is a typo. The "New-VHD" command should be replaced with "Add-VMNewHardDisk".
