We have a brand new Dell Server (R520) 32GB of ram, with 4 x 2TB hard drive, raid 5, usable 5.5TB's or so, I would like to install Windows 2008 Hyper V server. The issue that I am having is that I only want two partitions, one 160GB and the other the rest of the 5TBs, when I use the lifecycle manager it will allow for two partitions, but won't find the boot option for my hyper v, unless I choose BIOS mode, but when I do that I have to make several partitions no larger then 2TBs, what OS in the lifecycle manager do I choose?

Please advise me for the install.

Thanks for your time.
