WHS will not show drives missing MBR? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When upgrading from Beta 1 to Beta 2...

    And then again from Beta 2 to RC....

    My Promise Tech card (TX2300), lost the info on my SATA drives.

    It said the drives were not assigned.

    When I assigned the drives to JBOD, it said it would erase the MBR.

    After that, WHS did not see the drives at all... even in disk management.

    I had to move the drives to my reliable XP machine (because Vista wouldn't see them either),

    and the XP machine would show the drives in disk management and then I could re-initialize them.

    After that, they went back into the WHS machine and it could see and format them.

    Can we get an "XP" style disk manager in WHS?

    Thanks!
