Thanks for this report. This is a 2.0.0 regression which we can reproduce. The workaround is to use VBoxManage to create a new VM.

Using an even size is supposed to work as well. (in your case choose 24 GB)

  • Component changed from virtual disk to GUI

I have the same kind of probleme with vista x64 host, except that windows totaly freez.

I also manage to create new vdi using command line.

where can get and test 2.0.2

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by quantum.leaf

i have the same problem. are there any work arounds? is 2.0.2 available? how to create vdi with command line?

comment:8 Changed 6 years ago by frank

Have a look at the user manual section 8.12.

comment:9 Changed 6 years ago by quantum.leaf

i used this command to create a 9GB image. It's created in the default VDI folder so you just need to go to 'add' in the HDD settings C:\Program Files\Sun\xVM VirtualBox>VBoxManage.exe createvdi -filename ubuntu.vdi -size 9000
