Is there a limit on the size of the hard drive that can recognize ESX?


I would like to know if there is any limitation with regard to the size of the hard drive that can recognize an ESX 3.5 Server? I have a Dell server with 1.8 TB of HDD. When I try to install ESX 3.5 on it, ESX shows that space and be approzimately 1.4 TB. I understand that ESX requires little space, but I would not be the image that it's 400GO.



What is a RAID?  You could have 6 300 GB drives, RAID requires treatment, and basically, 1 disc is overload, so it seems you are using RAID 5 (if you have 6 disks).  In this case, that is right you have 1.4 flying over, which is what ESX sees.

    I had pre installed windows vista on my laptop. now, I replaced the hard drive. so, can we recover only windows giving you the serial number? I have sony laptop.

    How to get Vista recovery Media and/or to use the Vista recovery Partition on your computer.

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Where can I find the version of windows exactly for my laptop?


    The only legal Windows 7 download available is now Microsoft, as Microsoft has stopped DigitalRiver Windows 7 ISO downloads.

    But Microsoft only provides these downloads for Windows 7 keys to selling product at retail, not preinstalled OEM product keys (Dell, HP, etc.).

    If you have a Windows 7 license detail and are having trouble at the above Web site, contact Microsoft using the Support option.


    If you have a preinstalled OEM license (Lenovo, Dell, HP, etc.), contact Lenovo at the order of recovery media that they need to provide for a fee.

    Or you can also borrow the same exact retail edition DVD of Windows 7 and use your product key to reinstall.

    See you soon.

    Ports appear as it will keep and everything, but I'm curious to know, if I get this drive, I'll be able to install my Macintosh on that hard drive and use it on my laptop Compaq CQ62 or not?
    If this isn't the case, then I'll be able to install Windows 7 or uBuntu on this hard drive? The hard drive will fit even on my laptop? Thank you!

  • is there a slide in the hard drive for hp pavilion m8013w

    I want to load windows 8.1 on my current hp pavilion m8013w but, don't want to erase Vista with all my data on the current hard drive.

    So I think to install a hard drive "slide in" front loading slot and on the hard disk and then move all my data of visited.

    Anyone know what I should do when shopping for a slide in the hard drive.  is there a model number?


    Isely, welcome to the forum.

    Have you run the Wizard upgrade of Windows 8 to ensure that the components of the computer are compatible with Win 8.1?  It is available in the link I have provided.

    I am not sure what you mean by a hard drive "slide in".  You hear a "Personal Media Drive"?  If so, I can't find one any where.

    If the computer is compatible with Win 8.1, it would be easier to buy a SATA hard drive.  You can use the FREE copy of Aomei Partion Wizard to transfer your BONES and your data.  I downloaded it to see what it will do.  It seems to be a great program.  You should read all the 'tutorials' which are provided.

  • Replaced the HARD drive, but can not reinstall the operating system


    I replaced the HARD drive on my laptop and used the sony recovery media kit, but the error message "can not configure windows to run on this hardware of computers.

    The HARD drive is a Toshiba of the same style and size. Sony sent me two sets of disks, I replaced the HARD drive twice still have exactly the same problem.

    Any ideas before using it as a target would be useful.

    Thank you


    It is possible that the new hard drive, you bought are 4 k sectors and not 512 KB, which is necessary to make it work properly.  If you have a practical clean Windows installation disc that give a try and see if you encounter the same error...

    I installed my iMac (2009) in Yosemite.  He is now on all fours.  I intend to do a new installation of the operating system.  This forces me to format the hard drive.  I have already backed up my data.  With further regard to CS 6 and Lightroom is the appropriate mechanism to disable the program and then reinstall it from my Adobe account?  Any other input would be appreciated.

    Yes, disable it before uninstalling.

    to reinstall, you only need your serial number and installation files.

  • Wanted M6: Why are there 7 partitions on the hard drive of my desire to M6?

    As you can see in the screenshot below, my hard drive has 7 partitions.

    'C' is the main partition and "D" is supposed to be recovering.

    Then why have I not 3 additional recovery partitions?  And why the recovery partition "D" repeat?

    Something get screwed up with my upgrade of windows 8 to 8.1?  Can I consolidate one of these parties?

    "If you keep an open mind, life will give you more opportunities."

    I wouldn't try to consolidate anything - you could end up with a no boot situation. Some of us have recently discussed this and it was never cleared up. From what I know, it's the small recovery partition is Windows start-up files. The Efi partition is used for diagnosis, updates to the Bios, etc. Of course, C: is your partition Windows then recovered on D: files to run a system recovery in case you need to reinstall Windows. The great mystery is why Windows displays duplicates of some of the partitions. They are not physically there - but seem to be.

    This reminds me that I need to re - visit this discussion and see if any explanantion was never found.

  • I ran out of free space on the hard drive how can I free up space

    My pc is freezing or locking up when I run a desktop wallpaper animated, so I defragment a saw that I was up to 20% freespace

    You can create more free space in C in carrying one of the measures suggested below.

    The default allocation for the restoration of the system is 12% on your C partition is more generous. I have them would be reduced by 700 MB. Make my computer right click on your icon, and select System Restore. Place the cursor on your C drive select settings but this time find the slider and drag it to the left until it shows 700 MB and output. When you get to the settings screen, click on apply and OK and leave.

    A flaw that might be useless which is for temporary internet files, especially if you keep no copies on the disk offline. Setting the default value is 3% of the walk. Depending on your attitude to copies offline, you could bring it to 1% or 2%. In Internet Explorer, select Tools, Internet Options, general, temporary Internet files, settings to make the change. At the same time, look at the number of days, the story stands.

    The default allocation for the basket is 10% of the disk. Change to 5%, which should be enough. In Windows Explorer hover over your Recycle Bin, right click and select Properties, Global and move the slider from 10% to 5%. However, try to let you become so complete that if it is complete and you delete a file by mistake it will bypass the Recycle Bin and have gone forever.

    If your drive is formatted as NTFS another potential gain arises with your operating system on your C drive. In the Windows directory of your C partition you will some uninstall files in your Windows folder in general: $NtServicePackUninstall$ and $NtUninstallKB282010$ etc. These files can be compressed or not compressed. If compressed text the name of the folder appears in blue. If these files are not compressed you can compress. Right-click on each folder and select Properties, general, advanced, and check the box before you compress contents to save disk space. On the general tab, you can see the winning amount by deducting the size on disk size. File compression is only an option on an NTFS formatted disk partition / partition.

    Select Start, all programs, accessories, System Tools, cleaning disk to emptying your trash, delete temporary Internet files and other selected options. I recommend also you click Other Options, System Restore and delete all but the last system restore point. Run Disk Defragmenter.

    Using the system restore option is most appropriate when your system is slow and you need to increase the free disk space on your C partition. If you have errors that could be solved by using the system restore to your system settings back to before the error occurred initially do not use this option.

    If more than one person uses the computer and they have their own user log you need to run Disk Cleanup in each user profile that you want to delete all the unwanted files.

    A better program of disk cleanup is cCleaner. Delete System Restore points may be important if you have little free disk space. The ability to delete them is one of the tools options. You can selectively remove those created in less important moments.

    cCleaner comes with a registry tool. Do not use this tool as any registry cleaner could lead to the creation of very difficult to resolve system errors.
