    Disk 4 has the same disk identifiers ... KB2983588... doesn't resolve


    From the event log:

    Disk 4 has the same disk identifiers as one or more disks connected to the system. Go to Microsoft's support website (http://support.microsoft.com) and search for KB2983588 to resolve the issue.

    Let me digress...
    Funny that, as the support forum lists causes that ASSUME the same disk is really being referenced.

    My disk 4 is one of 4 physical disks.

    A
    Microsoft MVP at technet laughably pointed the user to the Answers community, where I sometimes try to fill in answers from these forums and always point out the forums here are better here.

    I found a post in these forums where the user seemed to enable some raid bios setting, but I don't see anything similar for my laptop.

    Suggestions?

    Altaro Support Center | How can I change the Disk ID of a drive?

    NOTE: When you open the command prompt, it has to be Command Prompt (Admin). Win + X will get you the programs listing with Command Prompt (Admin) on it.

    Is this a disk that you have previously cloned to another installed in your system? That's the normal cause of this. The unique disk ID you change it to can be any 8 HEX Character value, so long as it isn't the same as any of the others on your system.

    These are 4 drives that I have separately installed, none cloned. have been using a long while (years for disks 1 and 4), but windows started complaining after I used EaseUS partition manager to expand a volume on disk 2 (not disk 4).

    Update:
    My other disks have a GUID of some kind for the disk ID's example: {CCA97581-....-....-....-09517f9E0A63}
    Disk 4 however just has an 8 character hex code.

    Also, the table seems odd about the GPT

    Having said all that, all the disks have unique IDs.

    FINAL UPDATE:
    Seems (not entirely sure) that the GPT was hosed somehow. Anyway, rebuilt it using EaseUS and now all the drives have guids.

    DISKPART now shows * under each GPT

    Glad you got it sorted out! I was going to recommend to convert to GPT with MiniTool Partition Wizard.
