My mb is this: Newegg.com - ASRock P67 PRO3 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

- Should be compatible with new 3TB hds. I put my new 3TB hd in, and Disk Management created 2 partitions - 1 2TB and 1 746 TB one. I gave a volume to the 2TB partition but I can't create a volume to use the 746 GB left. See the pic.

I actually want to create a 640GB volume for a new OS install, and 100GB will be system reserved.

How to I make use and create a volume in the 746GB that's left?

Have you had problems with 3TB drives?

I bought this hd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822145472

Nevermind, I solved the problem! On Asrock's mb download page there is a 3TB hd Unlocker. Used it and it worked!
