Unable to format disk

I'm creating a xpenology in a virtual box machine to test it out before putting it in a server.

 

However, I cannot get past the error during DSM assistant installation "error formatting disk".

 

I am following instructions here: http://idmedia.no/projects/xpenology/in ... -or-later/

I have injected a new SN and mac1 address in my syslinux.cfg and it looks like this below.

 

The pat file I'm using is : DSM 5.2-5644 (28.10.15)

And the bootloader is XPEnoboot DS3615xs 5.2-5644.1

 

The installation process formats the boot drive with the bootloader, so each time that it fails I need to recreate the vmdsk file and that's annoying. I get the same error (code 32) if I do the installation from the web page.

 

Thanks in advance!
