    Hello everyone,

    I got a server running with more than 3,6 TB Raid5 harddisk space. To make one big drive I was forced to use the EFI method. But now the loader by Daz doesn't work anymore, because it doesn't support EFI.

    Is there any other way to get my Windows 2008 activated? Keeping in mind that I'm also going to run Virtual Machines, which also need to be activated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards..

    Unless you want to boot the OS from the 3.6 TB RAID (which I hope is not the case), the only thing required for such large disks is GPT as the partition table, instead of MBR. You can still use GPT-partitioned disks on conventional BIOS systems without the need to run EFI, just not for booting.
