Hello everyone, I'm a low level desktop tech who has been given the task of rebuilding a server for one of our customers. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Is it possible to get a beginning to end instructions from someone on here? Below is an email from the customer detailing what he needs. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Josh Here is the information for the server build. RAID 5 using as much of each drive as possible. There are 6 drives in the system, all are 72 Gig drives. I estimated about 255 Gig of space using a 5 drive RAID 5 with 1 spare. You may need to recreate the RAID 5 with spare. I will need one Hyper-V virtual system set up on the server. I will need at least 90 Gig for the main C: drive partition: more if you recommend it. The rest can be for the D: drive partition Assigned IP addresses xxx.xx.x.xx for the base OS xxx.xx.x.xx for the Hyper-V environment Server name for the Base OS = Server Name Server name Virtual OS = Virtual Server Name I purchased Windows Server 2012 Standard but would like to downgrade to Server 2008 R2. I do not know if this old server hardware can handle Server 2012. I know it can handle 64 bit Server 2008.
