Does Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID Controller fully support 3TB hard drives?
2) Intel Rapid Storage Technology
Intel RAID controller: Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID Controller
Number of SATA ports: 6
RAID option ROM version: 188.8.131.522
Driver version: 10.1.0.1008
Can we attach 3TB HDD to these controllers? Can we use whole capacity of such HDD ?
I am experiencing same issue with HP XW8600 thath has ESB2 Sata Raid Controller.
OS Win7 64b Ultimate
Seagate 3TB STBD3000100
I read the following and tried to install latest drivers from intel download f6flpy-x64 version 12....
Seagate says that it requires version version 10 plus Driver although it won't allow me to update from 184.108.40.2064 3/3/2010 to the latest version which is 12.... Please help so i know if I should return the seagate 3 gigs and give up on this MB....
Thanks for your help.
