How to add the new hard drive RAID 5 on

I have Dell Powerdege 2900 server and I need to merge the new hard drive in a RAID 5

Hi Sabry75

If you have open Manage Server Administrator installed, you can do the merge from there. It's rebuild.

You can refer to the guide to using OMSA below, look under the virtual disks of re-engineering/migration: -.

  • Add the new hard drive into the data store in ESXi 4.1

    Hi all

    I got ESX 4.1 installed on the Dell server, and I have 3 virtual machines on a data store.

    I added a new 500 GB scsi hard drive to the server,

    and I need to add it to the datasore or create a new...

    How can I see this new hard drive? and add it to the data store?

    Waiting for your help.

    That's all I can help you.  These instructions are based on the Perc 5 / i controller, which I think you have on our system.  You have not specified the server so I just assumed that this is so.

    1. unscrew the hot spare that you just made.  Follow this link from Dell.

    2 follow the link for the installation of virtual disks -

    This link has three steps to void, skip the step on "spare parts of designate hot."
    a. create the virtual disks and select virtual disk options.   -Online steps to create another disk group and add the new disk to the disk group.
    (b) designate the drives hot spares (optional). =>, YOU CAN SKIP THIS STEP
    c. initialize virtual disks. -online must do.  just do not initialize the incorrect disk.

    After the step #2 c, you should be able to access the drive in ESXi or command-line (list of nmp esxcli devices).

    And no, you cannot add this manaully until do you step #2 above which is to define the disk group, creating virtual disks and initialize the virtual disk.

    Good luck.

  • Add the new hard drive, windows does not start now

    OK, ill be as specific as possible here

    Ive always had a few hard drives in my computer at all times

    A few days ago, I had problems with my windows 7 install that I tabled to the installation while I had all of my hard drives connected at installation time.

    2 days ago I decided to start over fresh with a windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I also bought a new 64gig OCZ SSD for my OS.

    I disconnected all my drives except the SSD and performed a complete installation of windows 7 and all a well worked first go again.
    I then started to shut down my computer and adding a hard drive to the times and re starting and in ensuring that the drive letters came back how I got them I had on my previous built and changing them were nessisary.

    I installed my 5 drives in this case and the computer rebooted fine and everything was perfect until!

    installed hard drives
    1 SSD 64 GB
    2. 1.5 TB of storage
    3. 1.5 TB of storage
    4. 320 GB movies
    5. 320 GB games

    I copied all HDD 4. movies (only movies and music files) on disk 3.
    then I removed the hard drive of 4 and replaced by a new hard disk 1.5 TB and restarted the computer
    the computer starts very well and once loaded windows I coppied the movies and music of the new 1.5 TB hard drive back.

    now, I had

    installed hard drives

    2. 1.5 TB of storage
    3. 1.5 TB of storage
    4 movies 1.5 to
    5. 320 GB games

    This is were the problem started. I restarted my computer and it wouldn't start. He gets the message of realteck and just a cursor flashes and remains like that permanently.

    If I remove the sata cable to the back of the hard disc 4 the computer starts fine
    I can plug the cable in just before the windows screen comes up and the hard drive works fine and is FLEURIDAS and all.
    but leave it plugged during the start of what the computer does nothing

    things I've tried, I made sure all my boot priorities are pointing to the SSD drive
    I have turned all devices normal priming and the hard drive with the OS selected
    Ive made sure that all the drive letters are correct on each drive
    Ive tried to get started with the windows 7 CD to get to the repair section and I click Repair tool, start it recconises there is a problem but informs me it can not be fixed automatically and asks me if I want to send the information to microsoft (which me).

  • cannot add the new hard drive more than 2 TB on vsphere upgrade 5

    can someone give me a clue? I can't add new greater than 2 TB drive to my vm on my upgraded vsphere 5.0. My data store is 6 TB and already read by vsphere... I create new virtual machine and add the new drive, but it limits again just 2 TB when I change 4 TB, the error message will appear. I recently added my datastore LUN with VMFS5 version. is there a any mistake I made? Please help me this problem is so frustrating me... i need to create new disk 6 TB to my new file server


    You will need to use a RDM in physical Compatibility Mode to achieve. As weinstein5 said, a VMDK cannot be greater than 2-to-512bytes. You can use the OS to spread over several 2 TB-512bytes VMDK, if that's what you really want.

    Good luck!

    There are several ways to do this, anyone have product keys, since

    If you want to do a clean install:

    Windows 7-8 - 8.1 keys are embeeded on your BIOS

    Windows 10 use a generic key during the upgrade, so just skip the steps questions about a product key and the first time you connect on the web, it will authenticate to.

    You must decide:

    (1) do a clean install of your operating system to factory

    (2) make a disk - image of the system image and reload

    (3) to do a clean install of windows 10

    option 2 is the fastest at the end, as you create a copy of your HARD drive and reload it to your PC.

  • How to copy the recovery on the new HARD drive partition, HARD drive failed?


    I have a Compaq Mini netbook with Windows 7 Starter.

    The HARD drive has failed and it is not repairable. However, it seems that the recovery partition is OK.

    I want to buy a new HARD drive, install the driver on the netbook, and then use the tools/recovery partition to install windows 7 on a new PC.

    So, the question is simple: how to copy the recovery for the new HARD drive partition?

    Hello s91066.

    If your hard drive of your laptop doesn't have? If this is the case, what do you mean by the "recovery partition is ok? I doubt that this laptop has two hard disks, so if you are able to see this partition of your hard drive may still work.

    You will need a set of recovery disks to restore the partitions on the new drive. If you can start Windows, which you can probably not with a dead hard drive, you can follow these steps if you can get into Windows.

    If you are unable to boot into Windows, you need a set of disks. You can order it directly from HP. The number of the United States / Canada is 1-800-474-6836. If you are in another domain, you must visit HP's Support around the world to find contact information for your region.

    I hope that is useful; have a great weekend!

  • How to reinstall it on the new hard drive

    Inspiron One my 2330 client hard disk is dead. Obviously, it will not be a recovery partition on the new HARD drive that I installed. Because the Microsoft Windows 8 activation key is embedded in the BIOS, how will I be able to activate the operating system if I install a DVD if there is no recovery logic to tell the installation routine where the key?

    Thank you!

    The product key is embedded in the UEFI BIOS. It will be automatically entered 10 TH2 Windows installation media. If you are prompted for a product key however then you have used the wrong edition of the the Windows 10 TH2 so must use Windows 10 TH2 only language:

    Note Microsoft indicated the end date for the free update is in ~ 3 days, you will need to clean install Windows 10 TH2 and activating online before this date.
