Observations: Supposedly, the VMware had to detect the physical optical drive so the OS in it been automatically loaded.

I need more inputs for this... Guys help. I have 135 GB in host partition that I want it to used fully in VMware disk. I didn't ever tried this configuration before, so this time I am experimenting which better is performing faster among other disk set up in VMware.
