I have a dell server Poweredge T110. I have 2 usb sticks:

1: Sandisk Ultra - 32GB - Formatted exFat

2: Sandisk Cruzer Blade 8GB - Formatted NTFS

When I go to boot mananger -> Boot settings -> Set legacy harddisk drive order, the T110 only finds stick #1 and not #2. I have rebooted and switched sticks, a couple of times

Both sticks works fine in windows vista. What do I need to do to make my Poweredge find the Cruzer?

Thanks /

Most likely you'll need to reformat the Cruzer with exFAT or FAT32 rather than NTFS, which it seems as though the T110's BIOS does not support.

Hi. This is the tutorial: altaro.com/hyper-v/… Ok, so some bios does not support all file systems? I will follow the tutorial again and see if it is possible to do it with exFat. Thanks –  Peter May 6 '13 at 18:46
    
My guess would be that your BIOS indeed doesn't recognize an NTFS filesystem; I would be interested to hear whether it works with the stick reformatted to exFAT, though. –  Aaron Miller May 6 '13 at 19:47
    
I tried a third Sandisk stick and formatted it in exFat, Fat32 and NTFS. All three was found in bios. So, there is something wrong with Sandisk #2, not the Poweredge. I followed the turorial, and chose NTFS on this third stick. Hyper-v is up and running. Case closed. Thanks for your assistance, Aaron........ –  Peter May 8 '13 at 6:20
