I've been trying to get my mind around this one for the last hour, if anyone has a pointer to who it's done I would appreciate it:
Background: Our VMWare ESXi guests use scsi-based virtual disks all over. This lets us expand our virtual disks in real-time, a feature we use a LET, both on the OS drive (requires windows 2008 and later) and any data drives.
Now, evaluating Hyper-V I need to emulate this. The doc states that a hyper-v guest can only use IDE as boot device, and only SCSI-disk have the option to expand on the fly. So, I want to install Windows 2008R2 with two drives: Disk 0: IDE: boot files only Disk 1: SCSi: Windows (regular C drive)
If possible, I want to avoid giving the IDE-disk any drive letter at all, so that for a regular server admin it will look just like a regular (vmware) guest, with the windows folder on C: and all that.
Have anyone done this? Before I started researching it I thought this would be the way everyone did it, but I can't find much good info out there...
