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

Expanding a Windows partition is not the same as expanding a Virtual Disk.  The Virtual Disk is handled by the controller and, once configured, is presented to Windows as a physical "disk" in Windows Disk Management.  If there was more than one VD configured on the controller, it would appear as multiple "disks" in DM.  Since you only have a single VD, you can expand the VD by adding disks to the array.  If you need to expand the actual Windows partitions, that is done differently.
