The partition mounted on /boot/ contains the operating system kernel which allows your system to boot operating system, along with files used during the bootstrap process. For most users, a 250 MB boot partition is sufficient.

The root file system is represented by a (/) which is the top of the directory tree. This is roughly equivalent to your “C:” drive under DOS or Windows. User must create a partition for the root directory. The size of your root partition will differ depending on what you install or plan to install.

SWAP space on your hard drive can be used as virtual memory. Virtual memory allows your computer to run bulky programs and perform multifaceted tasks even if it does not have enough physical RAM. Data is written to a swap partition when there is not enough RAM to store the data your system is processing. Create one swap partition that is 50% to 100% the size of the physical RAM in your system. If you are short on RAM with plenty of drive space, go big. If you are short on drive space and have lots of RAM, go little.

I want to install Oracle Client 32 BIT on Windows 2008 R2 VM but I can’t see the “Next” button in the installation steps due to small window 😦

Lets Try Full Screen Mode:

VMware - Virtual Machine Console - Full Screen
Virtual Machine Console – Full Screen

But it doesn’t work as well…

So Now what??

Right Click on Desktop -> Screen Resolution

Windows 2008 - Screen Resolution
Windows 2008 – Screen Resolution

Select Higher Select Resolution -> Apply ->Ok

Windows - Select Resolution
Windows – Select Resolution

Now…

VMware - Virtual Machine Console - Full Screen
Virtual Machine Console – Full Screen

At first sight this look obvious but trust me none wants to waste time on this kind of issue because you tend to use Full Screen Option from View Menu which is not going to serve the purpose 🙂
