Hi everyone, We're coming up to We Got Served's ten year anniversary and I've been taking a good look at the site to work through some plans for the future. I wanted to give you all a couple of weeks notice that I'll be closing WGS Forums at the end of this month. As you'll be aware, the forums were opened to support Windows Home Server users and have done so brilliantly, thanks to everyone's participation. However, with each day that passes, there are fewer and fewer WHS deployments out there, meaning that forum registrations and traffic has now dwindled. I've tried a few times over the years to test some forums on related or adjacent topics, however, they simply haven't caught on. It's clear that these were always going to be predominately Windows Home Server forums and, with the passing of that platform, they've served their purpose well. So, please take some time to archive anything you need over the next two weeks. Access to the forums will end on Jan 31st 2017. Many, many thanks once again for your participation and support here. It's been a great community! Very best wishes Terry
Stable Bit Drivepool Is Final, Why Isn't There More Buzz And Should I Upgrade To Whs 2011

I hope that I have come to the right place to get some help to get me out of a bind.
A couple of days ago I found out that my server was not responding. After power cycling my server I heard the dreaded "death click" coming from the box and it would not boot. As my "luck" goes, it turned out to be the system drive of my server that had failed.
I purchased a replacement drive (1TB WD Caviar Black) and have installed it in the case and started the process of reinstalling the WHS V1 OS, however, when I step through the installation, I do not get an option to perform anything other than a "New Installation". I then get a warning that doing this will result in all hard drives connected to the system being formatted. Obviously this is not what I want to do as I still have all of my data on the storage pool drives, which are all still operational.
Can anyone please explain what I need to do to setup my new system drive and then have it recognize my storage pool disks.
Any help, advice or references will be greatly appreciated.
