[Mainconsole] Only 2TB of Disk Capacity can be recognized by Windows

Symptom

When using larger disks, eg. 3TB, 4TB, 6TB, it cannot be recognized but only 2TB disk.

當使用較大的硬碟時, 例如3TB, 4TB, 6TB, 它無法被正常辨識, 而顯示為2TB 硬碟。

Root Cause

  1. Windows XP and previous versions do not support GPT partition style.
  2. Windows Vista and newer versions have not configured to be used with GPT partition style.
  3. The motherboard does not support UEFI.

1. Windows XP 和以前的版本不支援 GPT 磁區。
2. Windows Vista 和較新版本未配置為與 GPT 磁區格式一起使用。
3. 主機板不支援 UEFI。 

Solution

  1. Use Windows Vista or newer versions.
  2. Be sure to create disk(s) using GPT partition style. Else, delete and re-create the partition using GPT (all current data will be wiped out). MBR can address around 2TB size only, but GPT can address around 18EB
  3. Be sure that the PC's motherboard support UEFI.

1. 請使用 Windows Vista 或較新版本。
2. 請確保使用 GPT 磁區格式創建。否則, 使用 GPT 刪除並重新創建分區 (所有當前資料將被清除)。MBR
    格式只能定址2TB 大小, 但 GPT 可以在18EB 左右
3. 確保 PC 的主機板支援 UEFI。
