I am having a strange problem with a supermicro system we just recently bought. I've got windows server 2008 R2 64bit installed, and configured the drives for raid 10. I am told the systems doesn't support true hardware raid, as it's an adaptec software raid controller that does the job. Nonetheless windows installed, on a 100gb partition.
During the install, no matter what I tried, whether it was to create a single large 4TB partition, or one small 100GB partition and a bigger one, windows seemed to automatically create the partitions at a max size of 1.9TB.
I would like to use a small 100GB partition for windows, and apps. Where the rest will be in a partition for data/files/etc. I don't want to have it split into 3, as it's really annoying having to work with it that way.
Storage manager doesn't seem to want to let me expand the larger partition either.
Any ideas what could be wrong? I am using a 64bit OS, and NTFS.
