YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BOOT FROM YOUR 3TB HARD DRIVE! YOU WILL NEED A MOTHERBOARD WITH UEFI! PLEASE DON'T GET ANGRY AT ME FOR IGNORING MY WARNING! Thanks for watching!
Installing New 3TB hard drive on a Windows 7 system.
Somewhat detailed guide on how to of space. An HDD can be initialized as mbr or gpt. Mbr can only support 2.2TB of space. So if you own a hdd with more space than that you cannot access the rest. Link to part 2 with more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAY0WmLbsPM
This is a quick way to fix an invisible hard disk drive in Windows or when 3TB hard drive gives just 2TB of available space. The only tool required is Windows Disk Management.
Many of u guys told me uve been having troubles getting windows to recognize ur hard drives at the capacity of 3tb and 4tb. Here I will show u how to install a 4tb or 3tb hard drive on a windows machine and have it recognize it as a 3tb or 4tb drive. Hope this helps. Subscribe as I shall be soon reviewing and open box the brand new Asus 4k Monitor and the GIGABYTE GV-N980G1
Somewhat detailed guide on how to install windows 7/8 (windows 7 setup shown) on a hdd with more than 2.2TB of space. An HDD can be initialized as mbr or gpt. Mbr can only support 2.2TB of space. Heres link to part one if you missed it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbzm_0fpLN0
I have installed a 3 terabyte hard drive but only 746GB is available http://www.avoiderrors.net/?p=24528
This is basically how to combine hard drives. If you have a hard drive with a lot of storage, you can install a new hard drive, make sure it isn't allocated, then right click on the storage hard drive, click expand volume. This works on storage drives only, DO NOT ATTEMPT ON YOUR OS DRIVE!!! If you wanna see how to install something, remove something, or fix something, please ask me any question you have and I will make a tutorial on how to do this that and the other for you. Thanks. PS: This computer has nvidia graphics card with on set desktop recording for video games. That is what I use as my recording software, so that will help out with that question for you.
WARNING - I will NOT be held responsible for any damages the software(s) and methods shown in this video may cause to yours or someone else's computer, hardware, software, and/or data, including loss of use of such devices and/or loss of data and/or loss of profits from the resulting inability to use such devices and data. Any information or program you choose to put into use from this video is done AT YOUR OWN RISK. As a precaution, I recommend backing up any irrecoverable data before installing and using ANY new software(s), including those shown in this video. This video will show you how to fix this issue: Virtual Disk Manager Only the first 2TB are usable on large MBR disks. Cannot create partitions beyond the 2TB mark, nor convert the disk to dynamic. When Microsoft Windows formats, partitions, and prepares a hard disk drive for installation of the Microsoft Windows operating system, it tends to favour the MBR partition table format. The problem with the MBR partition table is that it supports up to a maximum of 2TB usable storage space, regardless of the way the user tries to create, partition, extend, or divvy up the volumes on said HDD. Any remaining storage space after the 2TB mark is unusable and is essentially wasted under the MBR partition table. If you want to use more than 2TB of hard disk drive storage space on any given harddisk, you have to convert your MBR partition table harddrive to GUID Partition Table (GPT). The problem is that not all motherboards and BIOS combinations support GUID Partition Table (GPT). In order to convert an MBR partition table HDD to a GUID Partition Table (GPT) HDD, all content stored on the HDD under the MBR partition table will be lost (it will be deleted). This is why before performing this task, the user should back up any irrecoverable data to another storage medium (such as USB flash key, DVD writable disc, cloud storage, etc). Furthermore, if after converting your HDD from the MBR partition table to the GUID Partition Table (GPT), you wish to install (and be able to boot) the Microsoft Windows operating system from said GUID Partition Table (GPT) HDD, your motherboard must also support the EFI System Partition. If your motherboard ONLY supports the GUID Partition Table (GPT) and not the EFI System Partition, you will still be able to format the drive to the GUID Partition Table (GPT) system, but you will not be able to install and house the Microsoft Windows operating system to this disk. You will be able to use this GUID Partition Table (GPT) hard drive as a secondary or slave hard drive for additional storage space, with another physical MBR partition table hard drive (any size amounting to or under 2TB) housing and booting the Microsoft Windows operating system as the master hard drive. The method shown in this video can be done using simply a 64 bit version of the Windows operating system (so no additional software needed), HOWEVER in order to do so you will also need either access to ANOTHER computer that has a 64 bit version of Windows installed that supports GUID Partition Table (GPT), OR you will have to install your 64 bit Windows operating system temporarily to ANOTHER hard disk drive in order to perform this conversion (this installation of Windows can be temporary and therefore does not have to be connected to the internet, nor activated with Microsoft.) This method should theoretically work with any 64bit version of Windows, so Windows 10 64bit, Windows 8.1 64bit, Windows 8 64bit, Windows 7 64bit, and Windows Vista 64bit. Under Disk Management in Windows, if the Convert to GPT Disk option is faded (greyed out) and inaccessible (Unallocated space with no option for New Simple Volume, New Spanned Volume nor New Striped Volume), you need to make this hard disk drive temporarily a slave hard disk drive (secondary HDD) to another hard drive that will boot up a 64 bit version of Windows (this can be a temporarily installed, unactivated version of Windows 64bit). When booting Windows 64bit from the HDD that is not the target hard drive to be converted, under Disk Management, identify the slave hard drive to be converted, then starting from the right and moving left, right-click on each volume on the target hard drive and select Delete Volume. Do this until all active partitions on the disk have been deleted and you are left with only one or more volumes of unallocated space on the disk. From there, again under Disk Management, right click on the drive identifier and select Convert to GPT Disk. This video will also show you how to enable the GUID Partition Table (GPT) and the EFI System Partition on an Asus Strix Z270F Gaming ACPI BIOS under the Boot\CSM (Compatibility Support Module) function, switching from the Legacy OPROM to the UEFI Driver (skip ahead or fast forward to 13:00 to find out how).
