I was about to say you needed UEFI. Do you not have a discwizard with that drive? Check this

"Free DiscWizard™ software enables 3TB drive use on legacy PC BIOS as well as Windows XP-based systems"

Only thing is, not sure if discwizard takes windows 8 into account.

Here's notes about compatibility up to windows 7..
http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/beyond-2tb/

It may be that you need to create two partitions but I could be wrong.

"Compatibility Highlights

- If your system uses the Intel RST driver, your 3TB disk drive may appear to be 800GB. See our support article about the Intel RST driver.

- System memory requirement is 1GB and higher for 32-bit systems and 2GB and higher for 64-bit systems.

- Seagate DiscWizard software installs a device driver to achieve full capacity on Legacy BIOS systems.

- Windows systems with legacy BIOS using DiscWizard will need two partitions on the boot drive to achieve full capacity.


- Windows 7 and Vista native support for 3TB non-booting data drives is with GPT partitions, available on all systems.

- Windows 7 and Vista native support for booting 3TB is on UEFI BIOS systems and using GPT partitions only."

Hey did you figure it out?
post #16 of 17
On a side note,

Upgrade the drive to the latest firmware and disable hdparm.
This will prevent the drive from emitting the "chirp" that occurs.
Something todo with the head trying to park.

I had the issue with my 2TB b'cuda. It would sort of make my pc stutter and it royally p**sed me off.

Read the 1million page thread here.

Dammit, no "edit" button.

Anyways, I forgot the link to the hdparm program i use.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/hdparm/

Place a "disable hdparm" shortcut in the startup folder, or add it to the registry.

Good luck.thumb.gif
