How long to initialize HP MediaSmart EX475 discs on install
Posted on 2008-10-25
The initialize of Windows Home Server has been running for about 16 hours. All the drive bars are purple and the health light is solid purple.
I have replaced the two 500gb drives that came with the server for 4 750gb drives.
I ran the server recovery and it finished normally. I have the connector installed (had to use hosts) and the server is found.
I am installing the rest of the first computer on a Vista Ultimate 32bit, dual AMD, 2gb ram and the intiialze has been running a long time.
I assume because I increased the size of the drives and put 4 drives in that it would take longer but is 16 hours with no sign of movement reasonable?
Any help or discussion would be gratefully received as there is a great lack of info on the web (that I can find) so far. The forum has been moved and I cannot get it to come up.
So, is the time reasonable?
Have I shot myself in the foot by replacing the system drive with a larger one?
