Those files are actually bending the VMDK specs quite a bit. But as they appear to work elsewhere we're going to make them work too.

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by klaus

One thing which is definitely outside the specs is that the image is exactly one byte too short. This is at least true for the image in vmhaiku.r27363.zip. It's not a multiple of 512 bytes in size. What software are you using to create those images? It definitely is broken.

This will be fixed in VirtualBox 2.0.2.
