Hi there, if it shows 1TB on the BIOS then replace it! Remember that your BIOS/UEFI is the first level of recognition on your computer!

I find another person have the same issue with mine. Some one said need to download a software to reset harddrive capacity? How?

The strange thing is in my disk management and explorer, it DO have 2TB capacity. See the screenshot:

Your symptom is consistent with a bug in Gigabyte’s Xpress Recovery BIOS.

See this thread for an explanation and solution:
