This could be tricky on an older motherboard......like the one you have. Might have to drop Gigabyte an email and see if they have any advice for you.
The motherboard BIOS will only see one drive, assuming it does see it. Partitions are only seen by the OS.

I have an old gigabyte 81875 motherboard and was wondering what size of sata HDD it would support. I would like to install a 3 TB HDD. Also I have Acronis True Image 10 software so if I partition the new drive would the Motherboard see 3 drives or still just the 3Tb HDD
The real question here is what OS version are you planning on using. If its windows XP your limited to 2TB. If you your using something beyond that you should have no issues with the main-board seeing that drive. The OS would see whatever partitions you define.
