Windows x64 2003 Enterprise

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?SiBMYXd0b24=?=, Sep 20, 2007.

  1. Problem:
    4.77TB RAID 5 array is limited to 2TB of mountable space and 2.77TB of
    unmountable space.

    Attempted Solution:
    Researched Windows Server 2003 capacity limits, and was told to change
    disk-type from “Basic†to “Dynamic.â€

    Results:
    Drive cannot be changed to “Dynamic,†option is greyed out and when
    attempting to use diskpart in the command prompt an error was addressed,
    “Diskpart cannot convert MBR disks larger than 2TB to dynamic.â€
