Hi,

I am trying to install  a 3TB hard disk as bootable and one 3 TB  partition.I got an  Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Mother board.
I converted the drive to GPT and I can see 3 TB unallocated drive.When I install windows 7 64 bit,I get only 2 TB and the remaining  partition is not accessible
This m.board has a UEFI Bios.The Bios sees 3 TB drive,I read some articles  saying enable UEFI  Bios or UEFI boot  but in the Bios  there is no option to  enable UEFI Bios or enable UEFI boot.

 

Thanks for your suggestions

flash the BIOS witha new version. I had the same issue.  After I updated the BIOS with a new version it worked fine.  Before you flash the BIOS, make a back up copy of the current BIOS settings on a USB drive just in case.... ( speaking from experience)
