Adding and connecting a new virtual HD

    Win XP Pro

    Hello,

    I successfully created an XP Pro VM but I now need more disk space. Increasing a virtual HD size seems a little bit tricky as I need vmware-vdiskmanager tool and a tool like partition magic. So I decided to add a new virtual disk to my VM. To do so

    \- I stop the VM

    \- I open the VM setting pane

    \- I add an SCI drive

    \- I set its size

    \- The connected checkbox is grayed and checked

    When I look at the VM window a new blue HD icon appears.

    My problem is when I run the VM the icon is grayed, the setting pane tells the drive is not connected and I can't find the drive in XP.

    Any solution for this ?

    Kind Regards

    Xavier

    \[Edit] : ok I'm sorry I missed something in XP usage. I had to use the XP diskpart tool to make xp recognize the new drive.

    Regards
