Hi

 

Some useful information for you. You cannot delete the partition but you can disable the VID in order to not being displayed on windows.

 

Manual Installation

—Installs the operating system from a custom OS CD/DVD. After selecting this

option, insert the provided CD/DVD so that the server can reboot from the OS CD/DVD.

When using the Manual Installation method, the Virtual Install Disk (VID) is enabled

automatically and, during the OS installation process, a USB mass-storage device appears

with the name of VID. The VID contains a limited set of storage and networking drivers,

so any required SAS/iSCSI/FCoE adapter can be loaded, in the event that the operating

system disc does not have the appropriate drivers. Because the VID and the custom

CD/DVD might not contain all of the needed drivers, you might need to create a driver

CD/DVD to ensure that all required drivers are installed and that the OS can install

successfully. For information about creating a driver disk, see the OS installation guide.

To disable VID, reboot the server and press

F9 during POST to access RBSU and navigate to

Advanced Options>Advanced System ROM Options>Virtual install Disk.

 

Regards!

With current firmware versions (BIOS) the VID is removed and no longer supported with Gen9 and 10.


Hope this helps!
