Re: GPT disks on windows XP SP3
I have no need to have it be a boot drive but would like to be able to read the drive and share it on the network.
I’m wanting to make my windows xp sp3 computer into a file server. It’s a neat dual pentium 1 mmx. But problem is I can’t seem to get the 12TB drive to show up, I’ve found that this is because of GPT not being supported on windows XP SP3.
So I was going to try server 2003 r2 which did work in blue and white part of setup, it showed the drive and correct size but blue screens after text part of setup. (Again, I wasn’t installing on it) but rather a seperate 1TB drive which shouldn’t be an issue right?
Is there a way to update windows xp pro with files from server 2003 and make gpt work?
These drives are on a promise sata II tx4 300 which appears to like the drive fine and detect it properly in bios.
I see gigabyte made a utility which lets you make 2 tb partitions. Which would be super annoying so not an option.
I see also that paragon made a utility which I would try but I can’t find the download anywhere? If any of you know where to download it drop the link and I’ll try it.
Anyway, any ideas?
