I'm looking for clear instructions to start my second node of a windows file cluster running within vmware 5.01

i've succesfully brought up the first node after growing a datadisk but the disk information on de config of node 2 displays the old disk configuration, Now i hesitate to bring up the second node as im afraid to crash the disk

the procedure i followed:
- powerdown node 2
- full chkdisk on the data disk in question (no issues)
- powerdown node 1
- grow the data disk eagerzeroed thick
- booted node 1
- extended the partition
- succesfully checked all data and such
- checked config of node 2, disk info is different

 
How to proceed to add the second node ?. can it be started or should i reattach the disks vmdk ?

Thanks

It's Vmware VM config which is showing the wrong information not Windows.
