start-control panel-system and security-create and format hard disk partitions (under administrative tools), right click and format the 3TB drive to NTFS and quick format.

If that doesn't work check bios to see if it detects the 3TB and let us know...

If its a fresh drive it might have to be allocated.

Go into your control panel->administrative tools-> computer management and select disk management from the list at the left.

You will see your primary drive and the 3TB probably says unallocated sapce, just right click it and you need to make it a dynamic disk I think? Whichever option isn't MBR because windows doesn't like to boot off of a 3Tb drive. You can't quick format it because it defaults to MBR and windows won't allow it.

You need to convert the drive to GPT and then format/partition the drive as usual
post #5 of 27
Start -> diskmgmt.msc

You'll need to partition and format your new drive.

right click my computer and click manage. Look at disk management and make sure that it has an assigned drive letter.

I see the OP is running a MB with a UEFI bios. You cannot have a GPT partitioned disk in a UEFI bios system if the boot disk is not GPT as well. So either the new 3TB drive gets used in MBR mode and then Windows can only see 2.2TB of it, or the OP reinstalls Windows in UEFI boot mode onto a GPT partitioned boot drive.

Unless Asus has a3TB "unlocker" driver similar to Asrock's, that is, but I'm not sure if that's the case.
