Unallocated space on hard drive is broken up after creating Windows Server partition

ScreenshotHello,

Server 2012 R2

I have 4 - 6TB RAID 10 is 12TB. I created a 100GB partition then the rest of the drive was "broken" into 2 separate unallocated spaces: first one being 1950GB and the second being the remainder (9130GB).

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Don

You need UEFI and GPT to boot from a disk greater than 2TiB, If you didn't create a GPT disk to start with you won't even be able to access the rest of the disk. What hardware controller are you using? It's often best to split the array into two logical drives using that, then you can have a small disk to boot from and a big one which you can create as GPT for the data.
