I'm trying to install Ubuntu11.04 on VirtualBox4.1.20.0 and my host machine is windows 7.

  • Installed VirtualBox on my D:\ (Windows 7 is on C:\ )
  • While trying to install Ubuntu, the VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) gets automatically created at V:\Documents and Setings\ ...\My Documents\VirtualBox VMs\myUbuntu\myUbuntu.vdi
  • The problem is that I don't have a lot of free space on my C:\ and wish to have the Virtual Hard Disk on D:\ instead of C:\ , but there seems to be no option to do that during installation.

Any ideas?

P.S What I am doing is pretty similar to this this
