We have:1) Intel Matrix Storage RAID - Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID ControllerNumber of Serial ATA ports: 6RAID Option ROM Version: 22.214.171.1242Driver Version: 126.96.36.1993

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

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....
