  2. Western Digital 3TB drive for windows 10

    first thing for the boot drive is,

    the motherboard BIOS / UEFI must support access to GPT HDDs

    with MBR you cannot create a partition larger than 2TB nor can it be extended

    when preparing the disk you must set it to GPT before creating partitions

    when you start the installation you need to start with either a blank disk (no partitions) convert to GPT before creating partitions or continuing the installation

    or prepared the disk in advance setting it as GPT and either creating partition(s) in advance or having windows do the partitioning during installation

    also note x86 / 32-bit cannot be setup on or boot from GPT

    GPT requires the x64 / 64-bit version

    Windows 10 1709 64bit, windows image restore to a new drive fails, error 0x80042302

    I checked a couple more system disks of 512GB on different PC's that had the partitions created by the install of a fresh windows 10 1709.

    The partitions look all the same and in the same order:



    1) 499MB GPT NTFS (Recovery partition) Status None

    2) 100MB GPT FAT32 (EFI System partition Status Active & System

    3) 16MB GPT Other (Reserved partition) Status None

    4) 476.3 GB GPT NTFS (Data Partition) Status Boot

    The EFI partition would be 260MB for an ADF disk (4K sectors)

    Hide an gpt partition

    Are you saying your recovery partition has been assigned a drive letter.

    If so, you could just try removing drive letter in disk management?

    Thanks for replying.
    I'm using winpe to deploy my computers but i need to hide my recovery partition to not be seen in Windows.
    I know how to remove drive letter in Windows using diskpart, but i need to hide in winpe after applying the image.
    Thanks

    Assuming your recovery partition is 1, using diskpart Code: select disk 0 select partition 1 remove set id=de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001[/quote] Deploy Windows RE

    But remove option will not delete the partition?

    Thank you once again.

    Hide an gpt partition

    It will not delete the partition.

    remove removes any assigned drive letter, assign letter=x assigns drive letter x to the currently selected partition.

    You don't normally need to assign a drive letter to make a backup though (depending how you are doing it).

    the gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001 works flawless.
