[QUOTE=tmc8080;2655343]Anyone have issues with the 2.2tb barrier w/ windows 7? I built an i5/3570 system for a friend and could NOT get the p8z77v lk motherboard to recognize and format a single partition of 3tb… does it NOT come with the stock uefi firmware that allows this?
Turning off legacy mode bios only boots the system back to the bios EVERY time…[/QUOTE]Non legacy mode is for Windows 8, so legacy mode needs to be enabled for Win7.
Did you create the partition as type “GPT” as MBR will only allow 2.2TB.
I think you can fix it by using the “Disc Unlocker utility” from this page.
Also, you’ll need to boot the Win7 install in UEFI mode. So press F8 to get the boot menu and select UEFI mode.
