[vmware] Using physical disk/partition
I am using vmware server 188.8.131.52528 and I just wanted to know how harmful that feature can be. I want to use vmware to test distros on a spare partition.
VMWare warns me about using physical drives instead of image files, and overall, it seems a really inmature feature. I can't figure out how the partitions are ordered, I just get a list with partition 0 to partition 7, the ordering seems not to be the same of fdisk -l, and some of the partitions have the same size, so, I have no clue at all which is each one, and I don't want to risk foobaring a important partition.
If anyone knows anything about this, it would probe helpful.
Thanks in advance for any tip.
