Seagate Barracuda 3TB ST3000DM001 only 800GB on HP m9425f

Specs: Windows XP
I just bought the Seagate 3TB ST3000DM001 and tried to put it into my HP m9425f and the bios and window disk manager only recognizes 800GB. Tries the seagate tools and the seagate diskwizard to no avail.

The HP is running Windows Vista home preminum 64 bit and Bios is the HP IPIBL-LB Bios version 5.43 which shows UDMA 5.

I think this is a bios problem and it does not support 3TB drives? but why 800GB? can anyone confirm? thanks.

Sorry, posted too soon. Found the answer here. It requires Intel RST driver upgrade to 10.1+
