Partitioning a 250GB Drive
Posted on 2004-09-10
Ok, I'm feeling my stupid right now...
I have a win2k server, just added a highpoint raid controller, and ONE WD 250GB harddrive
I've loaded the driver, gone to Disk management and I see the drive.
The disk shows up as "dynamic" instead of "basic" which may be a problem.
I right click, say "create Volume", Simple Volume, it tells me to select a dynamic disk (mine's pre selected), tell it to quick format as F:, NFTS, Default Allocation unit size.
It goes through the motions and I see "New Volume (F:), 232.66GB, NTFS, Healthy. The colored bar shows that it's a simple volume where all my other drives are primary partitions.
What's weird is it would let me mount the drive as a directory of another drive, which I don't want to do at all. How do I get this drive to be f:?
