Hi,

I'm sorry for delayed reply. Yes, you have to reboot your server in rescue mode.
Select a product to configure / choose your server , Services, Netboot and finally choose 'rescue-pro'. Go back to console/Windows screen either and reboot your machine. Please avoid hard reset in case your system isn't frozen nor disconnected.

You just have to follow mentioned steps only (tw_cli commands etc).

HTH

Hi,

I'll translate that tutorial this week. Anyway, it works as explained in rescue system, what means never tested with windows yet but should work similar with.

In rescue you switch from RAID1 to RAID0, reinstallation of preferred OS by using OVH manager. Consider you just can manually create partitions for only one HDD. It's okay and nothing wrong.
Reinstallation of OS will finish, you login as always and move to system tools (windows) or cfdisk at console by using Linux.
You'll see (i.e. 2x750GB in your server) an empty drive with 750GB, no partition on it. Create new partitions now on it and use that 'won' HDD space for whatever you want...crypt, storage for files... backups...

Hmmm, this looks like something that I need to do as well. Is there a English version of this available anywhere? I too need the instructions for Windows not Linux or is this simply a Linux program you can run under Windows?
