If he has that model Dell may specifically crippled the board somehow?

NOT to hijack but I also have a BIOS based mobo (3+ years old ASUS model for a self build) and while I can see the drives in Linux it takes about 10 minutes to POST for my board to recognize any combination of HDD/SSD that is greater than 1.5TB and 3 drives. In windows any drive that would make the total capacity greater than 1.5TB doesn't even show up. So, is this a BIOS with SATA/ESATA limit or just intentional limits made by cheapo manufacturers that OP and I face?


You know, I did read that 600gb was the max scsi, but I just assumed that if I had used a drive greater than that size, then it would just show the max available as 600. I also figured a firmware update would resolve this but that is proving difficult as I'm not running Red Hat. Time to find myself a 500gb drive to test it. I am currently using the SCSI raid card for the HDDs.

Finally got this working. The SCSI RAID card (a whopping 1.5Gb/sec...) was only rated for 500gb max. There was some firmware that seems to be floating around that makes it able to read up to 1TB but there's little support or info surrounding it. The BIOS simply noted that the 2TB drive was attached, but didn't know what to do and would put N/A next to the size. Disassembled an external 500gb I had and it worked perfect.

I read this thread and it's entirety, not knowing the answer. My only question is, what did you do with the larger drive?

The problem was that the firmware didn't support drives of that capacity

I kept it in my windows machine. I had it in there before but was looking to turn that strictly into a gaming machine so was hoping to remove it. It currently just has loads of media on it.
