Re: Will my computer support above 2.2tb harddrives
"In order for an operating system to fully support storage devices that have capacities that exceed 2 terabytes (2 TB, or 2 trillion bytes), the device must be initialized by using the GUID partition table (GPT) partitioning scheme. This scheme supports addressing of the full range of storage capacity. If the user intends to start the computer from one of these large disks, the system’s base firmware interface must use the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and not BIOS"
I do not plan on running the host OS off any of these large 4tb drives I would install a SSD or a smaller mechanical drive just for the OS so I don't need to worry about that UEFI thing
So in that case my OS would be able to use the 4TB drives
But would my motherboard be able to see these harddrives I have read if a bios isn't recent enough it won't be able to use these drives and then it wouldn't matter if my OS could or couldn't read the drives
More help appreciated
