Depending on the motherboard to support Large drives,consider looking at the manufacturers web site to update the bios
There is a software program called EZ-Bios,this is a software overlay program from seagate.
Ref:www.windrivers.com-research the site using the Advanced section and click on the hard drive symbol,also see

Hi
You need a softwarw such a disk manager or a disk wizard which makes overly on your hard disk so the operationg system will recoqnize it by bassing BIOS.It should be a vendor specific and may also HD specific.
check your vendor (manfucturer) orgo to :
