Windows Invalid GTP partition

Posted on 2011-10-03

We have a 2008 R2 Server with two partitions. C (OS), E (Data). The e drive is a GPT partition because it's 7TB. After booting the GHOST Bootstick I saw GPT partitions are not supported. I rebooted the server. The raid contoller (HP) shows everything functioning with no errors. When Windows is booted it shows the E drive as Invalid.

Is there a safe way to get the disk online again? Windows Invalid GTP partition

    Yes, it's online but Invalid. Also diskpart sees the disk as online.
