Unable to create new 9TB partition in Server 2008 R2 STD
Posted on 2012-12-27
I have configured 8x2TB drives into a RAID6 with 11.175TB available. I loaded Windows Server 2008 STD R2 SP1, it created its 100MB boot partition and I carved out a 100GB OS Partition.
Once I boot into Windows, I see the 100MB, 100GB (C:), a 1.95TB and a 9.127TB unallocated space.
I can create a new simple volume out of the 1.95TB chunk, but am not able to do anything with the 9.127TB. I am also not able to convert Disk 0 to Dynamic or GPT.
Can someone please tell me why or what needs to be done so I can utilize all the unallocated space?
