I don't know if this would be specific to your mobo. Some hdds can only be used as slaves and not primary, someone correct me if i'm wrong.

Which hdd do you have?

I don't have a 3TB drive so I don't know for sure. But I know Asus has a software call Disk Unlocker that let you use drive that are over 2.2TB. Have you try that?
