Hi,
this happens when you forget to allocate all the space to partition on your drive, now what you can do is
start > run > type in without quotes "compmgmt.msc" > ok > Disk management > see on the right hand side if all the space is allocated to the partitions
if there is free space available you can right click on the free space and create a new partition.

Further Queries are welcome
please do rate me if you find my solution helpfull

Hard disk drive not detected during installing windows server 2003


It depends on what type of drive you are using. Plus, you may have to specify the array controller drivers if your are using the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives.

When Installing Windows Server 2003, Windows setup says it could find any hard disks


This is because the Hard disks are connected to Raid Controller . So you need the Raid controller driver in order to Install Windows 2003 OS. You can download the driver cd from below link .

Your hard disk may be faulty. If the BIOS cannot detectthe hard drive then it is faulty and you need to purchase a new hard disk before you can install Windows.

I cannot install windows 7,no disk seen are there drivers for raid smart array 5I for windows 7? DL 740 G1 , 8 x 2700Mhz+40GB ram , 4 x 73gb Raid 5


Not quite sure what your problem is but I would recommend getting Windows Server for a server like this. The HP site recommends the following OSes: Microsoft Windows 2000,
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter) ,
LINUX (Red Hat, SuSE) or Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Edition. It is unlikely Windows 7 will install on this 5 year old server.

Server XSeries 220


Yes, that is the total amount of hard drive space.
This server was built for speed not for storage.

The xSeries 220 server supports four SCSI hard disk drives. The server does not support IDE hard disk drives. Some models support hot-swap hard disk drives and other models support only non-hot-swap hard disk
drives.
Your server supports four 1-inch (26 mm) slim, 3.5-inch SCSI hard disk drives in the hard disk drive bays. You can install four non-hot-swap hard
disk drives in the models that have the standard non-hot-swap drive cage. You can install three hot-swap hard disk drives and one on-hot-swap hard disk drive in the models that come with the hot-swap drive cage. Both the non-hot-swap and hot-swap drive cages hold a maximum of three hard disk drives.

The calculation at that time was 4 drives with 36.7GB storage.
Even if you find the drives somewhere, they will be very pricy.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Hi
While running the windows 2003 setup (winnt.exe), it will ask for SASI driver, you have to add the scsi driver... then windows 2003 os will detect the HDD.. then it will install..
