    I've been a happy camper for my HP computer for several years. Recently, I purchased 4TV hard drives. Although, the embedded Intel ICH8R controller can use these massive HDD's as single HDD's, it can't hardware RAID them due to a 2TB HDD limit for RAIDing.

    I would like to know if there is a any way to update my BIOS (without breaking anything else) so that the Intel ICH8R controller doesnt have a 2TB limit for RAIDing disks?

    It's really no big deal if there is no way to do this since I can use Win7 software RAID. However, it would be nice if I had this feature on my motherboard.
