Subject:   FREEBSD and Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 with Physical disk as virtual disk

I was wondering if anybody has succeeded in installing FreeBSD 5.x
on a Microsoft Virtual PC with a second physical harddisk assigned
as virtual disk (for performance reasons).

When creating the root filesystem, the install aborts with
"cannot create root file systems  .... Error 38".

This doesn't happen with a virtual harddisk assigned to a file
(although it does gives weird things like 140% full disks...)

Installing a linux distribution does work, but I would like to
use FreeBSD ;-)

Kind regards,
