I recently built a new computer using an ASUS motherboard that uses an AMD processor. The board uses a UEFI firmware instead of BIOS. So wanted to use my RAID 0 volume which is 3TB as my primary storage.
The problem is when I go to run Windows setup from the DVD and get to the disk partitioning tool it wants to split the disk. It makes a 100mb reserved partition automatically which is expected. Where the problem is when I makes the system partition, it makes a partition that is around 2TB and then leaves about 750GB or so of unallocated space.
What gives! I thought UEFI was supposed to solve this problem with the 2TB barrier?
Is there something special I have to do with the Windows installer?
I have tried doing all kinds of things with diskpart last night and got nowhere. It said I needed to convert the disk in a GPT first then install. The problem is I do that then the installer overrides and does the same thing I said above about splitting the disk.
I don't want a system and data disk, I just want one massive volume.
Oh yeah if it helps at all, the board I have is an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
