    If you're running it in VMWare, your harddrive will not be touched. VMWare creates a file on your drive that it uses as its virtual hard disk image. That is all that will be partitioned.

    How about reading the VMWare manual and getting an idea of how it works - that will save you and everyone else a great deal of time.

    Proves you're right about what? VMWare doesn't allow guest operating systems to mess with your paritioning scheme. It creates a virtual harddrive image in a file that your guest OS manipulates like it's your real harddrive.

    Your screenshot just shows that you still haven't read the manual. When you create a virtual machine *guest* in VMWare, a virtual disk is created for the guest OS to use as a HDD. In the host OS, this virtual HDD is a big file. This virtual HDD has a .vmdk file extension. This *file* is what's being "partitioned" during the VM guest install.

    Making statements like "I'm right" when you've never used the software or read the manual is counter-productive. If you know what you're doing and aren't going to take any advice, why are you posting questions on here?

    PS: There *is* a way to have VMWare run off a physical disk, but it's an advanced setup that is *NOT* possible by default.
