Size specifies the size of the partition to create, in megabytes.



Specifies the size of the partition that you create, in megabytes.

For example, to create a 2 GB partition, set Size to 2000.


If you specify a size for the partition by using this setting, do not set Extend. If a value for Size is specified and Extend is set to true, no partition is created. An error is logged, and installation terminates.
