WS2012E installation issue - I cannot set the partition above 20GB - Help!


  • I have just started the WS2012E install process and I deleted all the exiting partitions and asked the installer to create a new partition. However it will not let me set the size of the partition beyond 20381MB (20 Gig). I have a 2TB hard drive in the server? Can someone please help me fix this issue?

  • I figured out the issue. I was using an existing HD that had a "data" partition that was taking up 90% of the space. I deleted all the partitions and created new ones. Now I have a system partition of 120GB and 1780GB for the balance.
