I have been resizing the hard drive on virtual box for a number of years and it's pretty straight forward. Use VBoxManage in terminal on the mac, then go into windows and allocate the space.
Today I went in and executed the standard command to increase the size from 55Gb to 65Gb.
- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage modifyhd "/Users/...../bk.vdi" --resize 65000
When I go into the Virtual Box Manager I see the .vdi under storage and it's (Normal, 63.48Gb) but get the FATAL: error when trying to start the machine.
The log file looks pretty standard like it cannot see the file, but the fact that it knows it's 63.48Gb would indicate it is seeing it.00:00:50.116607 VMMDev: Guest Log: BIOS: Boot : bseqnr=1, bootseq=0231
