VMWare will not allow install of SBS

Hi experts:

Using VMWare Workstation v7.0.1 with 4GBs of RAM on a computer with i7 2600k and 8GBs of RAM.

I am attempting to install SBS 2011 Essentials to D:\Virtual Machines, a second drive (not a partition).

It continues to say that I should see the drive it will go to. If it is not there, I am to browse to the drivers for the drive. It does allow me to skip that and install anyway, but it makes me check the box telling me my entire computer will be deleted. I don't know why when it is pointed to the D: drive. Maybe if it can't see it, it will install to the primary drive. I just am afraid to try.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
