Proliant 3000, Don't see the Hard Drives on Windows 2000

Hello,

I have configure the proliant 3000 to work with W2000, I have 7 HD of 9.1GB each, in a Smart array 3200 Controller, The array configuration utility shows 1 Logical Drive of 43385 MB. When I try to review the disks using Windows Explorer I can only see 1 C: drive with 4Gb. What I need to do in order to have the space available for storage, the Logical drive is RAID 5

Thanks

Did you use SmartStart to create the Windows Partition? There are some known isues that can cause SmartStart to only create a 4GB partiton for C:

Go into the disk manager and check to see that there is addtionall un formatted space left on the drive. I bet you find it there.
