DL180 G5 + Smart Array e200/128 + 8x750GB SATA

I'm installing a ProLiant DL180 G5 with smart array e200/128 and eight 750GB SATA disk (RAID 5 with the 8 disks).

Operating System is Windows Server 2003 64bits.

I need a first partition with 50GB and the rest of available space in other partition.

After installig i have:
1st partition: 50GB windows W2K3
2nd partition: 2TB
3rd partition: 2.8TB

I can format the 2nd partition but is imposible format the 3rd partition.

Questions:
Can i have only 1st and 2nd partitions with 4.8TB the second?
Why i can´t partition the 3rd?

Hi Luis,

Remember the Windows 2TB limitation.

Until W2K3, this partition limitation is applicable. I don't know if W2K8 overcome it.

Good luck.
