VMWare workstation 9: SL 6.3 Live DVD in VMWare Workstation:"unable to find the usable disk space"


Hi Guys,

I am running Windows XP SP3. I got myself a VMWare workstation 9.0. But when i tried to install SL 6.3 Live DVD in VMWare Workstatin It gives me error stating "unable to find the usable disk space", even though there is plenty of space in my hard drive like 150 GB free space. I tried to re-formating one partition again & tried to use its all space for this but still get the same error. Need your help on this.

Regards,
Ravi.

Are you talking about the Host's space or the client's virtual drive space?

You have me confused. You should be using a virtual hard drive. Are you using a physical partition or drive instead of the common file based virtual hard drive?
