SA641 Configuration

During the configuration of an SA641 controller I get the option to enable or Disable MaxBoot. What will be the correct setting if the installed OS will be Windows 2003 Server

Use Disable MaxBoot for Windows 2003.

When MaxBoot is enabled, 63 sectors are
used per track instead of 32. This increased number of sectors allows a larger boot partition for
operating systems such as Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 that use cylinders, heads, and sectors of a
physical drive to determine the drive size. It also enables you to create a larger logical drive or
increase the logical drive size (extend it) at a later time.
Logical drive performance is likely to decrease with MaxBoot enabled.
