Wrong size on hard disk... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to install WHS 2011, but under the installation it tell me that my 500GB drive is only 95GB. I've tried to actual do the install, but the drive is only 95GB in the OS also. The drive work fine in other computers. Anyone seen this issue before? What can I do?

    (I've tried to change cables and change which raid-controller it is connected to.)

    It might be the BIOS is reporting the wrong size.  Try installing a different OS on that hardware and see what it shows for the drive size (or skip the RAID controller completely and use a traditional SATA/PATA port).
