I've put a relatively large bounty (350) on a question I asked, and now the bounty's about to end. (Just to put you all in context, I was looking for a non-crappy way to use a physical partition for VMware under Windows.)
There are currently two answers to it, and neither of them are really positive. One of them suggests creating a driver; the other suggests I resort to the crappy workaround I already had (and posted in my question).
I'm not really satisfied with the answers. I did not learn a more proper way to do what I'm trying to do, and this is precisely why I put a bounty on the question. It would feel kind of bad to give away 350 rep for no better solution. But at the same time, I don't want to be a jerk, as the guys most likely put some effort in it.
So what should I do? Should I award it anyways, or would it be fine to let it rest in peace?
