    Hi,

    I have 5 units of HDD, each is 500GB.

    I have done a RAID 5, so total hard disk size shown is 1.8TB. When i try to
    install the server, the maximum NTFS partition size for C: drive is only
    500GB instead of 1.8TB. How to set maxium space as 1.8TB because i prefer
    only 1 drive instead of C:, D:, E: & etc.

    Thanks.


    Regards,
    Hong Jin

    What raid controller are you using? You may need to update firmware and or
    get an updated driver.
