Windows 7: 3TB Hard Drives

27 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64
3TB Hard Drives

One of my hard drives failed, so I put in a 3TB Deskstar as a nice capacity upgrade. However, if I put in the Deskstar, the BIOS (M3A32-MVP Deluxe version 2104) doesn't show any red flags, while Windows 7 fails to boot. Without it, Windows boots fine. Even when I boot into Windows then attach the drive, it still restarts then goes into an infinite Startup Repair loop. How do I fix this?

Using the USB 2.0 port on my Thermaltake BlacX dock only lets me partition 800GB of the disk through Disk Management (on GPT or MBR), while trying the eSATA causes the crash. Using ASUS's Disk Unlocker dealie also does nothing.

Never mind, all I had to do was to switch the connector from the Marvell 6121 to the southbridge.
