    Hello members
    I have just bought a MBP and like to have fusion with xp for my work(CAD).
    How could I add an xtra disk or partition with data (NTFS), accessible and used from and by the guest os.
    I am thinking that if I ever have a problem with the guest os it would be good if the data is on a extra disk. Is that possible, and if, how would I go about to get that done.
    Is it clear enough what I wanted to say?

    I know this is doable in Parallels, and it's doable in Fusion as well.

    Instructions are here, at the VMware site. Note that these instructions are for Windows XP. If you're using Windows Vista, the process might be a little different.
