VM won’t recognise new disk size after resizing in Settings

This post was originally published on this site

I create a VM by dragging the macOS Catalina Install App onto the new VM window. The default disk size is 40 GB. Before running the VM I click to customise it, and resize the disk to 60 or 80 GB. When the installing begins, it only recognises 42 GB. When I let it install the system and resize the disk afterwards, it also won’t recognise the new size. It keeps showing me 42 GB, however I resize the virtual disk.

  • I’m running a MacBook Pro, with macOS Catalina on it.
  • I have tried both Fusion 11.5.6 and the most recent Tech Preview, to no avail.

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks

Tiago
