I have an old AMD system running Windows 7 x64.
I recently upgraded to a 3TB drive (from 512GB), cloning my old drive contents over with Acronis.
Long story short, it shows up as a 748GB disk.
Yes, the disk is MBR. My mobo doesn’t support UEFI, so I can’t go to GPT.
I booted into GParted, and I can see the full size of the drive, 3TB.
I resized the partition to 1.9TB…
It won’t boot into Windows.
What am I missing here? Apparently it’s my windows installation that won’t accept a drive larger than 748GB.
I see other topics talking about this, and GParted fixes the issue.
In windows my drive can’t be any larger than 748, or it won’t boot.
I see people talking about needing Intel RST, but my chipset is AMD64.
Is there a patch I can install to get my OS to work with a boot drive that is larger than 748GB?
