XML Example

The following XML output for the DiskConfiguration setting shows two partition modifications. The first modification formats the partition for NTFS, marks the partition as active, and assigns the drive letter C to the partition. The second modification formats the second partition on the disk to NTFS, assigns the drive letter F to the partition, and extends the partition to fill the remainder of the disk.
