When you install Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 on the computer, you may experience a problem. Because you expect the disk assignment numbers to match the corresponding SATA or RAID channel numbers, you may set up Windows on the wrong drive, or you may even try to format the incorrect drive partition. Therefore, you may lose important data.
Note Under certain circumstances, it may be difficult to notice that the disk numbering does not match the corresponding SATA or RAID channel numbers. For example, if both SATA or RAID hard-disk sizes are identical, it may be difficult to tell the disks apart by using these methods.
Therefore, use one of the following workarounds:
- Use a hard disk that is completely unformatted (RAW).
- Create a partition on the disk if the disk is formatted.
