    Which Server OS you use ? I think you use Core Server OS.

    I think it's possible, use some commands.

    I have an old DDR Ramdrive and reformat it with this command. This makes me a 4GB ram drive mounted at A: You'll have to do some research to make sure you are selecting the correct disk (in my case Disk 2). It depends on how your MOBO rates it HDD ports and how many other HDD's are connected. (use diskpart - 'list disk' command to find out)

    Code:
    diskpart /s HDD_Format.txt
    Inside my HDD_Format.txt.

    Code:
    select disk 2
    clean
    create partition primary size=4092
    select partition 1
    format FS=NTFS LABEL="I-RAM" 
    assign letter=A
    exit
