Root partition size on software appliance installation

Hi, I am following the installation steps for the Software Appliance but it fails checking minimum disk sizes with this message: Failing install, root partition does not meet minimum install requirement 16GB.

 

Since it is an appliance I didn't change any configuration during the SO installation. I am using the dvd-SLES-11SP3-ACM-7.0.iso.

 

Here is some additional information:
