    I have bootcamp partition and three internal hard disks, two of them are formated for bootcamp and Windows only, say C: and D:.
    With BootCamp only, I can use these hard disks for my data, especially D: drive.
    But on Mac OS with VMWARE using the bootcamp partition, the Windows(vista) does not see the hard disk D.
    How can I make the hard disk visible on Windows using VMWARE+Bootcamp partition?

    You have to tell VMware that one of the internal drives in your computer is a Windows drive. This is done by adding a disk to VMware's list of disks - make sure you choose a real hard disk as opposed to a virtual one. I assume the process is similar to how this is done in Parallels - however, since I don't have VMware I can't give you exact steps.

    I tried to add a hard disk from settings in VMware. But it does not show any way to indicate a physical hard disk. It just show the way to create .vmdk file
    I am not sure if I miss something here.
