Disk mirroring for a dynamic disk with 7 partitions


Stefano Pascucci

Hi there
I have a problem trying to mirror a disk with more than 4
To obtain 7 partition onto a signol disk, I have
partitioned a 40 GB disk using fdisk from a dos boot disk,
made a primary bootable partition and an extended one
(with 6 logicak disks inside). Than I have converted these
partitions from fat32 to ntfs, installed wind 2000 server
on the primary one, installed required data on the
remaininfg 6 logical disks, and finally converted the
basic disc to dynamic, to start the mirroring process.
But now Iìm able to mirror only 3 partitions! When I try
to mirror a fourth one, the Disk Manager stop me
saying "unable to mirror the disk; logical disk manager
Is there any trick or workaround, or somethimg I'm
ignoring, that can let me mirror the whole disk?
Thank you all in advance
