Also, please recommend to me safe and reliable methods in upgrading my 40GB Image Teradata Express. Thanks a bunch to those who can help.

Upgrade 40GB Teradata Express to 1TB

This is an installation Guide of Teradata Express 40GB to 1TB

 
First:
 
1. Download the latest version of VMWare Workstation
2. Download Teradata Express 40GB
3. Download Teradata Express 1TB
 
Tips:
 
For extra safety if something goes wrong when installing, copy or duplicate the files.
 
 
The installation guide:
 
1.Install VMWare.
   VMware-workstation-full-7.1.4-385536
   Download from www.vmware.com
   Restart PC twice (if you uninstall)
 
2. Open VMWare
    Open a spare copy (i.e. H:virtual-machines40GB Uncompressed1sles10)
    —Some people suggest bridged, others suggest NAT network. With Bridged I loose network all together as it sees my          Ethernet as down, so I chose NAT. Is this right?
 
3. Power On the Virtual Machine
    Note: The Powerup takes a long time the first time
 
4. Select SLES10 Operating system
    UserID : root
    PWD : root
    Welcome to your newly built SLES10 OS complete with Teradata!!!
 
5. Restart the machine. This is done as its a first time startup, get a feel for startup time
   Ctrl+R or VM>Power>Restart
 
6. Select SLES10 Operating system
    UserID : root
    PWD : root
    NB: we need to install VMWare Tools First
 
7. Select VM>Install VMWare Tools
    This will open VMWare Tools File Browser
 
8. Mount the cdrom
    Open Gnome Terminal and type
    mkdir /mnt/cdrom
    mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
    The response should indicate a write-protected disk which is read-only
 
9. Uncompress the installer to the mounted cd
    cd /tmp
    tar zxpf /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-8.4.6-385536.tar.gz
    This step takes a while as it is a large archive to uncompress
 
9. Unmount the image and run the VMWare Tools Installer
    umount /dev/cdrom 
    cd vmware-tools-distrib
    ./vmware-install.pl
 
10. Accept all default answers.
      The VMWare Tools has been installed previously
       Press enter to accept each default
      There are many defaults (around directories)
      Accept when vmware-config-tools.pl, 
      runs after the installer file finishes running.
 
11. Networking on the virtual machine will be interrupted 
       To restore network type in gnome:
       /etc/init.d/network stop
        rmmod vmxnet
       modprobe vmxnet
      /etc/init.d/network start
 
12. Log out of the root account.
      Using the same gnome session
