Windows can allow the OS drive to be more than 2TB if the bootmanager is GPT. The space problem is related to MBR/GPT. So you need to convert MBR to GPT. But you have to make sure your motherboard mode, if you want to convert to GPT, the motherboard must be UEFI. If it is not, you cannot make the drive a GPT. The specific method is 3rd-party tool that is useful for you. Like MiniTool PW, it is specially convenient and easy to operate. I think you do not wanna the process to be complex.

hi
Yeah i figures he is talking about this, as i did some online search also.
The only problem is that i have been reading the tut for 2 days now. Haven't completed it yet .

If only i had someone who could do this for me, i am ready to pay

I do believe it's an issue with Windows now allowing more than 2TB for the OS. Slightly annoying, but then again that's why I use Ubuntu!

Hello
I bought a 9 TB (3*3 ) server today. Installed windows.
But the problem now is that i cant use the full space
http://prntscr.com/5wt46w
tried various configs, but still i will be left with around 800 GB of space that cant be utilized
Any help is appreciated.

Oh and i dont mind getting the whole space in one drive letter
But i think windows will not allow the OS Drive to be more than 2 TB.
Haven't searched about this issue in the net yet
As i thought i will ask here first, as for all my last queries i got help in the forum
