Dell OS Partition Choices for Server
Posted on 2012-09-07
Looking at a T620 server with a RAID 1 + RAID 1 setup and Windows Server 2008 Standard. Dell gives the following options for the OS partition:
40GB Microsoft OS Partition Override add
80GB Microsoft OS Partition Override add
Maximum Microsoft OS Partition Override, GPT Enabled
Maximum Partition Size Override for Microsoft Windows Factory Installed
Since I'm purchasing a total of four hard drives with a RAID 1 + RAID 1 setup, will the OS be installed on the first pair of hard drives, thereby leaving the second pair empty?
The last two options appear (at first glance at least) to the exact same - are they?. 40GB seems terribly low given all of the Windows updates. What does the partition table look like if None is selected?
