For you computer savvy cats.

I have a EVGA Z68 motherboard and I just bought in a 2 TB drive to replace my 1 TB drive as it's no longer has the adequate capacity I need. I went to install it as a 2 TB storage drive and the system through fits when I did tried to partition the full size of the drive. I could not get Windows to fix this so I ended up using Linux to delete the partition, then used Windows to make 2 partitions and that worked fine. I'm pretty sure the bios is UEFI and shouldn't have a problem or maybe I'm understanding that?

I'm not buying any of this. You just googled all that, didn't you??

They have interweb in KC? Thought you had to be in STL for interweb.

Sounds crazy, but I've been on high speed internet since Jan 2000.

I've done that before, just never hard Windows 7 throw a fit when I partitioned the whole drive which was about 1.8 TB in actuality. Wouldn't let me delete it, format it or anything. Loaded up Linux and it fixed it. Heard about boot drive issues with large capacity hard drive, but not a storage drive. Guess I know now lol.

I think I have a bad drive. Some files I have copied to it became corrupt and on reboots I get a Safe error in the bios screen.
