3TB Not showing up?

I've partitioned my 3TB Hitachi in windows 7..... i can no longer see it in windows. I've formatted it using a bootable disc. It will not let me assign a drive letter nor can i see it in windows.

My question is, how do i get this to show up? I can see it in Disk Management but i cannot do anything to use it. Something about MBR....

Any ideas? Any more information that you guys need?

MBR maximum volume/partition size is 2TB. You will have to partition this disk with GPT. Sometimes there is a work around with bios but that's not something I have ever looking into.

Must be something in the BIOS, because when i got the computer both the 3TB and solid state drive were working flawlessly.
