I was able to get the system to recognize the full 3TB drive by plugging the 3TB hard drive directly into the Gigabyte mobo. Previously, the 3TB drive was plugged into a Rosewill 4 port RC-218 PCI Express SATA II controller card. I haven't looked too deeply into it, but i'm hoping I can update the driver
so that this card recognizes 3TB drives.
The issue still remains though because now Disk Manager shows the entire 3TB as a disk that is Not Initialized.
How do I get the system to recognize this drive? Why is it that the system recognizes the drive when it's using the external USB controller? Again, when it's using the external hdd controller, the system recognizes it as a 1 partition 3TB drive formatted as NTFS as a primary partition.
I'm currently scanning the drive with the MiniTool Partition Wizard, but i'm at 20%, and this looks like it's going to take a while....
More suggestions for a quick fix are welcome.
