4 HDD Support:
Internal SAS storage capacity of up to 1.8TB (4 x 450GB 3.5" SAS drives)
Internal SATA storage capacity of up to 8.0TB (4 x 2TB 3.5" SATA drives)

Re: ml110 g5 max hard drive size

Hi, I'm trying to figure out if the onboard Sata controler of the ML110 G5 can support 3TB hard drive... I'm having a hard time to find this information. I don'T want to buy a 3TB drive if it doesn't work.

 

I'm planing to buy 2x 3TB drive for a raid 1+0

Do i need to make a firmware update (BIOS) for 2TB drives? It works on RAID1?

Just tried a 6TB drive in ML110G5. Bios thinks it is 1.6TB. Windows 7 sees 6TB but will only format to 2TB drive. Apparently can get to 3TB if formatted as GPT.
