[vbox-dev] Using a real hard drive in the WIndows version of Virtual Box

Hi Frank, and Dmitry,

In the "unix: world, the VBOX document provides a command line
to create a physical drive vmdk file. That command is:

VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename /path/to/file.vmdk 
  -rawdisk /dev/sda -register

However, on the Windows version, there is no corresponding command
described in the document, and the GUI does not provide a method
for creating a physical drive vmdk.

Could you please announce  to the whole list how to do this?

In addition, Could innotek provide a full documentation on all of
the "internalcommands" that are not even printed when you issue
the command
VBoxManage --help
