Windows 7 64-bit won't show full size 3TB of WD30EZRX

Hi,

Please can somebody help?

I bought WD 3TB HDD WD30EZRX

BIOS recognize HDD like 3TB but in W7  I can see still only 750GB (746,39GB).

Disk type is GPT (GUID partition table).

Machine is HP 8100 Elite Minitower with latest BIOS. Version of BIOS in ROM: 1.13 07/14/2011

Please do you have somebody any idea why?

thnx

You need a UEFI BIOS to boot that size of disk.
