NTFS partitions / createrawvmdk: not readable for W2K guest

Reported by: SAP.pie Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.6 Keywords: raw partitions unaccessible
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


Good afternoon,

using the createrawvmdk command all my NTFS partitions should be accessible to my W2K guest on a Vista SP1 host, but Windows Explorer proposes to format them (for they are not readable).

I created the vmdk-File according to the manual chapter 9.9:

VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename "D:\Programm-Daten\VirtualBox\VDI\LG.vmdk" -rawdisk \.\PhysicalDrive1

Then I registered the file: VBoxManage registerimage disk "D:\Programm-Daten\VirtualBox\VDI\LG.vmdk" -type writethrough

afterwards I assigned the file/raw disk LG.vmdk as a primary slave to my VM.

listpartitions command:

VBoxManage internalcommands listpartitions -rawdisk \.\PhysicalDrive1

Output: VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 1.5.6 (C) 2005-2008 innotek GmbH All rights reserved.

Number Type StartCHS EndCHS Size (MiB) Start (Sect) 1 0x27 0 /32 /33 130 /170/40 1024 2048 2 0x07 130 /171/1 1023/254/63 30728 2099223 5 0x07 1023/1 /2 1023/254/63 102437 65031184 6 0x07 1023/1 /1 1023/254/63 5122 274824018 4 0x07 1023/0 /1 1023/254/63 13311 285314400

Type 0x07 is NTFS-formatted.

Though I understand that this command is intended for unique use of the partitions by the guest, I do not understand that they are not readable for the guest.

Did I miss some driver installation or something?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

To me this sounds like a plain and simple NTFS version incomatibility. Windows 2000 can't operate on NTFS partitions created by Vista.
