 I have a virtual machine (Win2003 Server) that I need to add a second hard drive to for users data. The problem is I need this drive to be 400GB and when trying to add this drive it limits me to 256gb. How do I create a larger drive?

You've hit the maximum size for the block size on your disk. A block size of 1MB limits you to a 256GB disk.
