Want from the old system unit to make a NAS server, but want to simultaneously use Windows on it. Are there any solutions for this use ?
Now there is the ssd with Windows and a hard drive at 2TB. How and where to install?
What does ESXi? 2Tb is not a NAS, but ... how can I say this to not hurt it?

Not very clear what you want with ESXi, because you have it does not appear in the text.
And of course Samba can access the folder on the hard drive to access under the backups for example.
Well, connect app which will be there something to zapisyvat or read.
Then you will be able to use Windows and your hard drive will be available in the store.
Of course not all application will work, but it works.

there probably Hyper-v will help or any other hypervisor that you run under Windows. Just a question - what for it is necessary? What is required from the NAS and how you plan to use Windows?

I would put ESXi on a USB flash drive which it will boot the system (Windows system and the NAS to the SSD), virtual disks to store information on the HDD. But as already wrote above, the best would be to put Windows directly on the SSD, and it is on a Hyper-V already NAS. Again, it all depends on the amount of RAM that the ESXi host as he eats about 2 GB. For him you need 8 GB of RAM.
