I have a computer with old 500GB and 1TB drives I want to replace with shiny new 3TB drives. I do not know the requirements to make 3TB drives work, but I know I've heard of other problems (Chipset, OS, controller, BIOS, etc) as drive sizes have passed lower threshholds.
The documentation in my motherboard (BFG680i) and SATA cards' (Promise SATA300 TX4) manuals say nothing about their supported capacities; only that they support SATA300. The computer is a 64-bit machine running Windows Server 2008 x64, but I can get 2008 R2 if that's a problem.
What might limit or prevent me from installing 3TB drives successfully?
