How to get WIndows Server 2012 to recognize 3TB RAID if BIOS doesn't support UEFI?
Posted on 2015-01-21
I have an older HP ML 350 G5 and four 1TB disks. I wanted to make an ~3TB RAID-5, but ran into the 2TB limitation due to MBR. It doesn't appear that my BIOS supports UEFI and I also get an error when I try to extend the volume in Windows Disk Management. Am I pretty much stuck with this limitation? I've read online that only the boot partition cannot go beyond 2TB, so I set that at 256MB. However, the largest partition beyond that is still limited to about 1.7TB.
I updated the RAID controller, but it's a basic E200i, so perhaps that's causing the limitation?
