Have anybody dug into Windows Server 2019 yet? Is it ready to take the place of 2016 in a production environment? Has it fixed anything in 2016? Just looking for thoughts.
I have a Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 running Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials lost network connection in the middle of the night, but got it back after a reboot. However, Intel RST icon in the task tray shows "Initializing" and it's doing it very slowly - only 8% after 1hr. Can...
So, for anybody who's interested, the cause of the error appears to be that I had my optical drive (used to install the OS) connected to the wrong controller on the motherboard. The SuperMicro X10SDV-7TP4F motherboard has two controllers: a Broadcom (LSI) controller for the 16 SATA3/SAS2...
I'm not doing a UEFI boot. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to having the OS (Windows Server 2016 Standard) on a GPT disk with a UEFI boot? Wouldn't it be better to leave the boot/OS disk non-GPT?
So I did just a clean in DiskPart (w/o creating the partition primary),
SELECT DISK 0
but I get the same error message, Error: 0x80300024. I don't know what having a previous installation (2012 R2) on those drives could have done to mess it up. From the Windows...
Hi Steven, thanks for the quick reply! I should have mentioned that I did try this:
SELECT DISK 0
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
but it didn't work. Should I have not created the "partition primary" maybe?
Can anybody please help with this?
I had a clean install of Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard installed on a RAID1 volume (2x 480GB SSDs); the install went without a hitch, including no need to load drivers or anything else. I decided I wanted to upgrade to Windows Server 2016 Standard, so from...
The system/OS/boot/data drive is all one 1TB HDD with C: (OS) and D: (data) partitions. So everything is on RAID1. It's not an ideal setup. I'd rather have a separate OS drive and Data drive, but I'm just working with what came before me. Trying to increase storage space with minimal downtime.
Oh, okay. Well, it's a real simple setup, just two partitions (1 for OS, 1 for Data). It's Server 2012 R2 Essentials which is just being used for a file server, client computer backups, and a few applications (accounting program, etc.). Do you think a GPT boot drive would be okay for that, or...
Can someone help me on this? I currently have a lenovo ThinkServer TS140 running Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials on a 2x1TB HDDs RAID1 volume. The RAID1 volume is MBR and is partitioned into two partitions (1 for OS, 1 for data), but I want to replace the entire volume with larger...
Okay, so it's not just me! I was wondering. I'm looking for two 480GB models as well. Wish now I had bought more when I bought my first one 6 months ago at $110. o_O Now the best price I'm seeing is about $295. That's crazy!
