HP Z640 support 8TB disk

HP Recommended
HP Z640

Hello everybody,

 

I need to buy a workstation and i was looking for z640 with 2 CPU configuration.

My question are:

     Does z640 support 8/10 TB hard disk?

     Can i install Windows Server?

    

I want to use this workstation for Graphics jobs and nas. It is possible?

Maybe with a freenas virtual machine or something else?

 

Thanks

Hi Artillio,

 

You may want to look at this info;

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2581408/windows-support-for-hard-disks-that-are-larger-than...

 

I have a Seagate 4TB drive in my Z620 which is formatted GPT. (Windows will/should automatically prompt you to format the drive GPT once you install it). I have my 4TB drive configured as 2TB/1TB/1TB approx. I don't see any reason why a 8TB drive would be any different. The main things to remember are that if you want to boot from a partition on the 8TB drive you need to run an UEFI installed version of windows and the maximum permissable partition size is 2TB. 8TB = 4 x 2TB
