Hmmm, I probably forgot that one can set a virtual disk dize without
having that space for the relevant files on the host machine (at least
this is what I suspect you imply)...as I always pre-allocatethe space
for "my" virtual hard disks on my test machines.

Feel free to test, of course, as long as you stop the installer before
it tries to create - and first erase - the 500GB partition...:-)
