Hi Hanccocka,

After the conversion, there are 3 vhd files created. demo_1 is the system and C: drive, demo_2 is d: drive which is 30 GB, and demo_3 is e: drive with 700 Gb.

Since Demo_1 is C:\ and system partition, I have to attach it to IDE 0. Since IDE 1 was attached with CD-ROm, does this means that I have to attach demo_2 and demo_3 to SCSI?
