You may need to go into the "host bus adapter" bios and look at the options. When that screen comes up there is a keystroke to go look at the settings. I believe it is control H or perhaps F5-f8. Once you are in those menus it is simply a matter of creating two separate virtual disks. There may also be options to select the boot drive in there. Best of ...

Try using pure WDS with no SCCM. SCCM is basically MDT on steroids and MDT is not what I would use for a bare bones installation of Windows To Go.

I eventually resolved this problem by following the advice given by Michael above. Zeroing out the first few megabytes of the drive and then re-installing the operating system did the trick.

Is /etc/inittab the only file missing or does it look like other parts of / are affected? If only inittab is missing, try googling for it and rebuilding one, or install a VM with this version of the OS to get a fresh copy, or restore from backup if available.

The battery attached to the RAID controller's cache module allows the write cache (array accelerator) to work. Without the battery, the array accelerator is disabled. The ML350 G6 server was sold from 2009-2012, and HP RAID batteries last 3-5 years. So your old battery may have died. Just replace it with a new battery and you should be fine.
