Hello Pirmin,

> I have a notebook with two SSDs, On which I have installed Sculpt.
> I want to use the whole second disk for one VM.
> VMs that use partitions from the first disk work well.
> In the launcher for the VM using the whole second Disk I configured block
> access as follows:
> <service name="Block" label="block0"> <parent label="ahci-2"/> </service>
> Where ahci-2 is the name of the second disk displayed in the Sculpt
> Leitzentrale.
> When I start this VM, it looks, as it would wait to get access to the Block
> session (only two lines of output are printed).
> Is this setup possible or do I need to change it in some way?

I would imagine that your setup should work. As a test you could deploy
the 'part_block' pkg and point that to your second SSD. If it is able to
parse the partition table that would suggest that something in your vbox
setup is missing.
