Does D2500HN support 3 TB HDDs?

Hi,

I wanted to check if D2500HN Atom based motherboard supports Hard drives of 3 TB.

Wasn't able to understand if it has UEFI, and if it doesn't, whether there are other ways to use large hard drives with this motherboard.

My plan is to use two Seagate 3 TB HDDs (ST3000DM001), and to boot from one if it.

Thanks a lot.

I see an option for UEFI boot within the BIOS settings by using the ITK (http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20829 http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20829). I do not have a board to test, but it seems the option is there, so >2TB boot drive should be possible. Be aware that there is no official support for x64 operating systems though: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-008326.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-008326.htm
