Updating Your System
After Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 has been installed, you need to update your
system using the Driver Set. To update your system, see “Updating the System”,
page 22.
Reinstalling an Operating System in a Dynamic Disk
A basic disk that has been upgraded to a dynamic disk may contain an additional
partition other than the partition where you reinstall the operating system. To reinstall
the operating system in the dynamic disk without removing the old partition(s):
■ Choose the partition where an old operating system was located.
■ To format the partition, choose Use the current File System.
Installing on the Mirrored Volume
When re-installing the OS to a hard disk drive which has been upgraded to Dynamic
Disk, only the simple dynamic volume is available for installation.
To install the OS on a volume that is mirrored using Disk Management, proceed as
follows:
1. Invalidate the mirroring.
2. Reset to the basic disk before the installation.
3. Validate the mirroring again after the installation.
Note: You can create, invalidate, or delete the mirror
volume by using Disk Management in Computer Management.

Magneto-Optical Drive
If you try to set the current file system to NTFS on your system with MO drives
connected, you may fail to format the file system.
To format correctly, disconnect the MO drives from your system and repeat the
installation procedure.
Tape Media
Remove all tapes from the tape drives before you install.
Additional Peripheral Devices (such as RDX)
Some peripheral devices need to be removed or disabled before starting setup. Refer to
the instruction manual delivered with the peripheral device for pertinent information,
and proceed accordingly.

BIOS Update
To install Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008, you may need to update your BIOS.
To check if your system needs the BIOS update, go to:
http://support.bull.com
For the update procedure, refer to the Readme.txt available on the above website.
RAID Configuration
To use the hard disk drives in RAID configuration, configure the RAID system before
installing Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008.
To use the RAID controller (LSI MegaRAID SAS PCI EXPRESS ROMB) embedded
on the motherboard, refer to "RAID System Configuration" in the User's Guide of the
server.
To use the optional RAID controller, refer to the manual delivered with the controller.
System Partition Size
Use the following formula to calculate the total partition size required for Microsoft®
Windows Server® 2008:
Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 64-bit (x64) Edition
Required partition size = size required to install OS + paging file size + dump file size
+ application size
Size required to install OS = 11,600MB (Full Installation)
or = 4,100MB (Server Core Installation)
Paging file size (recommended) = Installed memory size x 1.5
Dump file size = Installed memory size + 300MB
Application size = Required size
Caution
■ The above paging file size is recommended to collect debug
information (memory dump). The initial size of the paging file
must be large enough to save dump files in the boot volume,
14
User Guide
www.bull.com
or the lack of virtual memory may result in a failure to collect
debug information. Ensure that your system has a sufficient
paging file size.
■ Regardless of the mounted memory size and the Write
debugging information (type of memory dump), the maximum size of the dump file is the mounted memory size + 300
MB".
■ To install additional applications, add a disk volume for the
applications.
Example:
A partition size required for a system with an installed memory size of 512 MB and a
full installation of the operating system:
11,600MB + (512MB x 1.5) + (512MB + 300MB) + application size = 13,180MB +
application size.
If the provided partition size is smaller than the sum of size required to install the OS
and paging file size, expand the partition size or provide a larger disk. If your system
does not have a sufficient dump file size, divide the required file space into multiple
disks by performing the steps below:
1. Set the system partition to a sufficient size to install the OS and paging file.
2. See “Fault Recovery Settings”, page 30 to write the debug information of the
dump file into another disk.
If there is not enough disk space to write the debug information, add another disk for
Dump file.
Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 32-bit (x86) Edition
Required partition size = size required to install OS + paging file size + dump file size
+ application size
Size required to install OS = 6,300MB (Full Installation)
or = 2,200MB (Server Core Installation)
Paging file size (recommended) = Installed memory size x 1.5
Dump file size = Installed memory size + 300MB
Application size = Required size
Caution
■ The above paging file size is recommended to collect debug
information (memory dump). The initial size of the paging file
must be large enough to save dump files in the boot volume,
15
User Guide
www.bull.com
or the lack of virtual memory may result in a failure to collect
debug information. Ensure that your system has a sufficient
paging file size.
■ The maximum paging file size allowed per partition is
4095 MB. If the value of the installed memory size x 1.5
exceeds 4095 MB, set the paging file size to 4095 MB.
■ When the installed memory size exceeds 2GB, the maximum dump file size 2048MB + 300MB.
■ To install additional applications, add a disk volume for the
applications.
Example:
A partition size required for a system with an installed memory size of 512 MB and a
full installation of the operating system:
6,300MB + (512MB x 1.5) + 512MB + 300MB + application size = 7,880MB +
application size.
If the partition where the operating system is installed is smaller than the sum of
necessary size to install OS and paging file size", expand the partition size or provide a
larger disk. If your system does not have a sufficient dump file size, divide the required
file space into multiple disks by performing the steps below:
1. Set the partition size to the sum of size required to install OS and paging file
size".
2. See “Fault Recovery Settings”, page 30 to write the debug information of the
dump file into another disk.
If there is not enough disk space to write the debug information, add another disk for
Dump file.
BitLocker
If you use BitLocker, note the following:
■ Before you install Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008, create the two partitions:
- System partition for a loader
- Boot partition for the operating system
Note: For more information, see the documentation in
Microsoft TechNet: Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption Stepby-Step Guide.
16
User Guide
www.bull.com
■ Be sure to keep the recovery password secure. Do not keep it around a server
running BitLocker.
Caution
Without the recovery password, you cannot start the operating
system and see the partition content encrypted by BitLocker.
The recovery password may be needed when you start the
operating system after performing the following:
- – Replace the motherboard
- – Initialize the TPM
- – Change the BIOS setting
■ Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 is not installed in the partition encrypted by
BitLocker.

The maintenance service representative is in charge of collecting memory dump. Customers need only to specify the memory
dump.
If any problem occurs after specifying the memory dump
according to the process below, a message informing you that
the system is short of virtual memory may appear. In this case,
do not restart the system. If you restart the system, the memory
dump may not be stored correctly.
Follow the steps below to configure the memory dump setting.

- Select a drive with a size of the installed memory + 300
MB.
- When the installed memory exceeds 2GB due to
added memory, change the Write debugging information to Kernel Memory Dump before you add memory.
After you add memory, the memory dump size may
change. Make sure that the drive to save the memory
dump still has enough space.
■ Windows Server 2008 32-bit (x86) Edition
- We recommend you to specify "Complete Memory
Dump" to write the debug information. If the mounted
memory size is larger than 2GB, "Complete Memory
Dump" cannot be specified; in this case, specify "Kernel Memory Dump" instead.
- Select a drive with a size of the installed memory +
300MB". In case of the memory capacity is more than
2GB, select a free area of "2048+300MB" or more).
- When the installed memory exceeds 2GB due to the

save dump files, or the lack of virtual memory may result in a
failure to collect debug information. Ensure that your system
has a sufficient paging file size.
■ For the Recommended file size, see “System Partition Size”,
page 14.
