Re: Size and Unstallation of VM ware
1) Depends which version and which options you install. Not more than a few hundred MB for the native VMware files, not including the VMs.
2) XP is not detecting (does not have a driver for) the virtualized SCSI controller you are using for that VM that used to be Vista. Either obtain the correct driver and use F6 during the initial installation to supply the driver, or blow away the VM and start over with the guest OS type of XP which will correctly set the SCSI controller that XP has a driver for. VMware supports two types of virtualized SCSI controllers: BusLogic and LSI Logic. LSI Logic drivers can be found here: http://www.boche.net/dropbox/LSI%20Logic%20LSI20320-R%20SCSI%20drivers/ XP should already have a native driver for BusLogic SCSI controllers.
