Pinned topic Failing installation in pre-check stage due to low disk space.

‏2013-05-10T10:24:27Z | "low disk failure installation low precheck space space"

My host OS has over 600 GB of free space and as per log my guest OS is having 1.4 GB free space. BigInsights Installer started, but through use of a browser to access: http://X.X.X.X:8300/Install, installation is repeatedly failing with disk space issue.
.
I appreciate if any body can help me to solve this issue ?

At present I am running installation on RHEL 64 bit VM.

Do I need to increase the size of VM?

If so, then I am making note of few points: maximum virtual disk size is 50 GB with ~1 GB current size and 2.1 GB RAM.

Installation log:
INFO] @localhost.localdomain - Free space of /dev/sda1 is 1.4G
[ERROR] PriorChecker - Disk space check - failed on localhost.localdomain
[ERROR] PriorChecker - 255 -- com.ibm.xap.mgmt.DeployException: Free space - 1503238554(B) < biginsights.minimal.install.size + totalfree * 0.1 - 5519032975(B) : free disk space is less than minimal requriement

    The log indicates file system /dev/sda1 only 1.4G free space available, that is not enough to install Biginsights, could you please add more space to this file system ?

    trying to install 

     IBM InfoSphere BigInsights Basic Edition Version 2.1.0.0

    Installation log reads

    =================================

    ====================================================================

    i am not sure how to add more space to the file system, i have expanded the memory to 30 GB.

    wats the difference between /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1?

    I appreciate if any body can help me to solve this issue ?

    Thanks in advance
