Ticket #2251 (new defect)
cannot specify disk geometry

I do not see any option for setting disk geometry of disk images.
Since some OSes calculate the disk geometry based on disk size or read it from the data stored on the disk rather than querying the bios they can get to a disk geometry different from the one VirtualBox calculates.
This does, of course, cause the OSes to fail unless the geometry is configurable in bios to match what the OS thinks.
