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?


Re: ml110 g5 max hard drive size

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.
