    I'd like to be able to run multiple VM's on my Mac Pro, but I keep getting an error message about (oddly enough) not having enough disk space available when trying to launch the second one.

    The machine is very over-qualified for the task:

    Mac Pro w/16GB RAM and 2TB of disk space. Lots of space (hundreds of GBs) available in my home directory. I've set the program to allow up to 8192 MB of space to be reserved. Each guest OS is marked to have 1024 MB. I'm using build 1940, which I believe is the most recent release.

    Any ideas why this doesn't work would be appreciated.

    I can't tell you WHY yours isn't working, but I had no issues running 3 VMs on my MBP.

    I am running a heavyweight Oracle development environment in one SuSE Linux VM at the same time as XP in another, together with Firefox and several office apps under OS/X, all in 2Gb of memory.

    Oh to have 16Gb to play with !! If you find that your machine cant run multiple OS's I'll happily trade the MBP so you can :)
