We currently have a Dell PowerEdge T110 server with a 250GB SATA HDD.

Spec of machine

It is running Hyper-V server 2008 R2 (the bare metal hyper visor thing that doesn't have the full GUI). We are running out of space and want to add a second 1TB drive to the machine. If I buy a 1TB SATA HDD and add it into the machine, when I reboot will it pick it up? Can I use it?

This is our first time using Hyper-V Server and I am not 100% sure if this will work?

Thanks

Yes, you'll just need to initialize and partition the disk using DISKPART from the command line.
