Ticket #2336 (closed defect: invalid)
Size calculation wrong when vdi is on a FAT32 disk

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Steps to reproduce:
- Create a FAT32 partition
- In VirtualBox, begin the new disk setup
- Select fixed-size
- Choose to put the vdi file on the FAT32 partition
- Select any size (doesn't matter, but make it small for this test)
- At the final screen, there is an error saying the vdi file is too big
The problem went away when I reformatted the partition as HFS.
I would guess the easiest fix is to notify the user that a HFS partition is required -- but do what you will.
