Yep thats how I am backing up my main DC with hyper-v creating a vhd2disk thingy.

Effectively the same route as I currently take but slightly different. I use ESXi and a script to backup the VM images onto a NAS drive. From there I copy them onto an external HDD. I have booted the images in VMware Workstation and it loads up fine. Both my DCs, AV & Print, SIMS, WDS/MDT and terminal server are VMs. File servers where user home drives are kept and shared drives are sitting on a physical box that simply back up to tape.
I did give Hyper-V a try but I didn't like it because it's like VMware Server or Workstation. My preference is to have a simple Hypervisor like ESXi so there's less room for it to go wrong. *touch wood*

And to backup or move DHCP I do this:
export = netsh dhcp server export c:\dhcp.txt all
import = netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcp.txt all
