Count Physical HardDrives

Recommended Posts

Bertman

Hello,

With Windows PE (bootable XP cd) i want to do a local disk check. The check work, but i want to do repartitioning (if that's the correct word) and format if needed.

I want to know how I can check if there are more then 1 physical drives in the machine. If there are more, I need to partition disk 1 as one partition and if there is one physical disk I need to repartion it in 2 pieces.

Can someone help me with this problem ?

The check is this:

$var = DriveGetDrive( "FIXED" )
If NOT @error Then
    If ($var[0] <> 2) Then
    ;there are more or less then 2 partitions
        MsgBox("","","Er zijn meer of minder dan 2 partities aanwezig.")
        
    Else
    ;there are 2 partitions
        MsgBox("","","Er zijn 2 partities aanwezig.")
    EndIf
Else
    MsgBox("","","Er zijn geen lokale schijven gevonden.")
EndIf

Nobody has a sollution ?

I'm not sure if this works because I'm at a shared computer but couldn't you check the serial of the drives returned by DriveGetDrive()? It should be equal for partitions on the same physical drive.

Is this returning the count of partitions or count of physical drives?

$var = DriveGetDrive( "fixed" )
 If NOT @error Then
ConsoleWrite($var[0])
 EndIf

It's returning partitions.

This should return physical disks.
