    You have to format the drive as a GPT partition not MBR. Also you will not be able to use this drive as a boot drive if you set it up as a GPT drive, only MBR drives are boot able. If you want to boot to the drive and have access to all 3tb you need to partition the drive in 2 partitions either 1 2tb partition and 1, 1tb partition or spit it 50/50 2, 1.5tb partitions.

    Also make sure you are using the latest bios for your board.

    I'm already setup new F9 bios.
    Do I just using disk management from Windows

    OR

    Do you have any experience with this software:
    Acronis True Image WD Edition.

    Thank you for information.
