Provisioning - Windows could not create a partition on disk 0

New DL380e G8, 8 x 2tb raid 6 (ADG).

 

Having eventually managed to get the provisioning to read the W2008R2 ISO from USB, after reboot from copying the files, Windows install reports:-

 

Windows could not create a partition on disk 0, the error occured while applying the unattended answer files <Disk Configuration> setting. Error code 0x80004005

Probably running up against the 2TB MBR partition limit. You will need to create two Logical Drives. A small one for the OS (less than 2TB), and a large one for data

Thanks, that's exactly what it was.  Great tool, but only as good as the documentation that comes with it
