Hi Harry,

Sorry if I misunderstand the problem that you describe. Please explain.

The size of the partitions in a live system (when booted from an iso 
file) and the size of the corresponding partition in the installed 
system are rather independent of each other. The size in the installed 
system depends mainly on what drive space is available (or what you 
decide to allocate). This should be the case in a virtual machine as 
well as on bare metal (directly in a computer).

Best regards
