The space is not an issue. I have lots of free space. Their(PC support people)
argument is that, no one should mess up the installation, by installing
software themselves(They think we, users, are idiots). If I install potato, and
install a boot manager etc etc, and if they came to know about that, then they
will promptly remove it. So I thought, best way to hide the installation, is to
run it through vmware.
Let me formally ask for permission, and go through the straightforward way, so
that I can get Potato working.
