Can I use PP1 if my WHS only has one hard drive? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Can I install PP1 to gain access to the new features if I do not use two Hard Drives?  I noted in the Windows Home Server Power Pack 1 Public Beta Release Documentation it indicates you MUST be using multiple hard drives.

     

    Server Upgrade Installation

    Ensure you have a working Windows Home Server with multiple hard drives that is running the original version of Windows Home Server (you will see a build number of 6.0.1500.6 in the Windows Home Server Console – Settings – Resources page).

    I believe the reason MS put that in the documentation is to get as many people as possible to test Power Pack 1 and see if the data corruption bug has been resolved.  (Keep in mind, it's only a beta version at this point.)

     

    But, as kegobeer already said, yes, it will work with only one drive.
