  • P55A-UD3 RAID BIOS problems with 3TB drives

    Hi. Having a bad night after just buying two spanking new 3TB WD Green drives and finding out about the 746GB BIOS issue.

    My current MB is GA-P55A-UD3. BIOS F11
    The Intel RAID BIOS is v 9.xxxxx
    So only can create a RAID 1 volume as 746GB.

    Windows x64 OS detects the drives fine as single 2.8TB drives.

    Searching around the net for a solution. And it looks like one solution is updating the BIOS via a modded Firmware.
    But I only found a list for UD3L and UD3Rs...here

    Quote:

    GA-P55A-UD3R BIOS F13 MOD Rev 1.0
    Updated with...
    Intel Raid Rom Updated to 11.6.0.1702
    JMicron Raid ROM Updated to 1.07.28
    Reltek PXE Updated to 2.50
    Thought I'd ask here if anyone has any other solution they could think of as it seems to be a bit of a dead end? Possible to slip in the Intel BIOS (11.6.0.1702) for the UD3 F11 Firmware some how?
