      <DiskID>0</DiskID>
      <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk>
      <CreatePartitions>
         <CreatePartition>
<!-- Create primary partition, 20 GB -->
            <Order>1</Order>
            <Type>Primary</Type>
            <Size>20000</Size>
         </CreatePartition>
<!-- Create extended partition and fill the rest of the hard disk -->
         <CreatePartition>
            <Order>2</Order>
            <Type>Extended</Type>
            <Extend>true</Extend>
         </CreatePartition>
<!-- Create logical partition within the extended partition, 6 GB -->
         <CreatePartition>
            <Order>3</Order>
            <Type>Logical</Type>
