Server 2012 r2 and a partition larger than 2TB
Posted on 2016-08-27
Just got stuck creating a Hypervisor.
I have 2.8TB available to me.
I have created a single virtual disk using all the disks (dont worry - I am happy with this config :) )
When I try to install Windows.. And I create my system partition .. thats fine.. 100GB however, then Windows carves up the remainder as 1950GB unallocated and 750GB unallocated.
I have deleted the VD and recreated in raid manager (Dell box) and also used diskpart to turn it into GPT .. which it demonstrated it was.
I then created my 100GB OS. Same 1950GB and 750GB unallocated appeared. Once built, it still is unusable in Windows Server 2012 r2.
What I am doing wrong here guys and gals?
many thanks in advance
