|After spending several hours researching 2TB limits with BIOS firmware/MBR partitioning, I'm still not 100% sure if what I want |
to do will work or not. Currently, I'm using a 1TB hard drive
that I've had for about 5 years. I originally wanted to replace
that drive with a 4TB hard drive but I realize now that this is not possible without having a motherboard that supports UEFI.
However, the question that I keep getting mixed answers on is,
if I use my current 1TB hard drive as a MBR based boot drive,
can I then use Windows 7 x64 disk management WITHOUT any additional software (e.g. Seagate DiscWizard) to partition the 4TB drive as a data drive using the GPT partitioning scheme? More specifically, will Seagate's ST4000DM000 model hard drive work with my motherboard which is Asus' A8N5X if I use it as a data drive only and WITHOUT having to use Seagate's DiscWizard software.
Thanks to everyone that reads this is advance!
