Re: PowerEdge 2900 (and 2950) with PERC 5i - expand Raid 5

I'm in exactly the same situation, and am very glad to have googled this posting.  I have an question regarding one of the followups...  

You stated:  

"There is one exception to the ability to grow a virtual disk; if you raid 5 was split into 2 virtual disks (e.g. 50GB for a boot drive and the rest for a data drive), you cannot grow the raid 5 set."

Now my RAID 5 volume is listed in OMSA as a single virtual disk.  However, in the Disk Management MMC, that virtual drive is partitioned into 2 logical drives.  Can this array be expanded?

Thanks!
