Only 2TB of Disk Capacity can be used

Symptom

Only 2TB of disk capacity can be used when using larger disks, eg. 3TB, 4TB, 6TB and so on.
 


Root Cause

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

 

Solution
