Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a virtualized Windows 2003 Server machine with one basic disk (boot drive) and three Dynamic disks. The machine is running in an VMWare ESXi server.

I had to remove the three dynamic disks from the VM, and now I want to re-attach them. The disks now are recognized as Foreign on the Disk Management console.

When I right-click on one of those disks, I have the option to "Import Foreign Disks...", when I select it, a dialog showing "Spanned volume - Data Incomplete" appears, and when I click Ok on this dialog, the message "Some of the volumes you are importing will lose data because...".

What can I do to re-attach those disks?

Here's a screenshot of the Disk Management console:

Thanks in advance, Leonardo.
