RAW drives larger than 2TB are not supported correctly

Reported by: paperinik Owned by:
Priority: major Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.8 Keywords:

Host type: Windows


I created a RAW disk VMDK for an Hitachi 3TB drive but on the guest it shows as a 750GB drive. Given that this value is also reported in the "virtual device name", it makes me believe that somewhere the number of sectors available is stored as UInt32 since the log file correctly reports the right number.

This happens only for RAW drives attached to a virtual SATA controller. Attaching the drives to a virtual SCSI works fine.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

This works here with a recent release of VirtualBox, so probably fixed now. Please reopen if necessary.
