Error: The chain of virtual hard disks is corrupted. There is a mismatch in the identifiers of the parent virtual hard disk and differencing disk

Cause: Mount VM's VHD that VM with snapshot(s) with Disk Image Tool.


1. Go to the settings of the VM. Select the hard disk and click on Inspect

2. Click on Reconnect

3. Browse and select the parent VHD. Check the Ignore ID mismatch. Then, check finish.

4. Repeat the step to other VHD if have. 

5. After reconnected. Power on the VM, Windows scan disk will run. Let it finish the scan. It may take time.

6. Log in to windows as usual. Done

Hope this will help.


  1. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I�ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I�m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I�m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I�d really appreciate it. for wd external hard disk 1tb visit nayashopi
