Has anyone tried that with a 6tb version? I’m trying, but resizing causes boot failure afterwards. Any ideas for that?
I saw this thread and before I saw this post, I thought hey I should upgrade my 4tb cloud to 6tb; so I pulled up NCIX to see the current prices for a 6TB and they were $339.99 for a WD Red 6TB and then I checked on the price of a 6TB Cloud to find they were only $369.99 only a $30 difference for all the trouble.
Then I pulled up this post to say that to find that you were trying it…
I would “guess” that this would be a bios problem in recognizing the boot sectors on anything larger than 4tb. Again, guessing, that the workaround would to be booting from a smaller partition then mounting the remainder as a data partition.
My guess comes from trying to boot from a raid 5-8TB 4x2TB = 6TB in Windows a few years ago resulting in having to create a 100GB boot partition and mounting the remainder as a Data.
Hopefully someone in the know will answer this question or perhaps someone with the 6TB cloud can dump a raw image.
Let us know how you resolve this problem.
