I gave a HP Compaq model # EN330YT#aba which I loaded the consumer edition of win 8, 64Bit.
I added 2 hard drives via SATA ports and successfully used the storage spaces feature to create 1 large storage pool. This feature worked greats and is easy for even a novice user to use.
However, when i turned the machine off and then back on again, it hung up at the BIOS Post screen and would not go any further. I could not get into BIOS, Boot Disc utility or any other function at that point.
The only way the machine would come back on was if I disconnected the drives in the pool and then restarted the computer. I had to reformat the drives and make them a dynamic drive again to get the computer to boot back up. However when i did that, the STORAGE POOL was gone and had to be rebuilt.
The storage pools are a great idea, but if WIN * does not keep the pool information it is useless if it has to be rebuilt each the computer is turned on.
Has any one else ran into this issue????
Thank for the help
