Problem with EVGA FTW3 Intel X58 motherboard BIOS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I got a new 3TB western digital HDD, and I'm having trouble with my BIOS. So if I'm right, then I have to configure the SATA port to the HDD, but I'm having trouble with that. I went under the user manual for the motherboard, and in the standard CMOS features, this is supposed to be there

But when I go under the standard CMOS features, this is what I get

How do I get to the one in the manual? And if I can't, is there any other way to install the HDD?
Thanks!

Refer to this thread

Basically you can't use it as a primary drive. That place in the BIOS you're looking for has nothing to do with configuration, it only lists what is hooked up. You will need to set SATA mode to RAID/AHCI/IDE depending on what you want to be doing (probably RAID or AHCI you want) and would probably be under somewhere else like integrated peripherals. But with a non-UEFI based BIOS, you can't use it to install Windows or use as a primary drive. You can only use it as a secondary drive, like for storage or whatever and it has to be formatted as GPT in Windows (not GBT as spelled out in the other thread).

Thanks!
Just a quick question, how do you format a drive as GPT?
