If you have been experiencing an issue where your newly purchased 3TB is showing up as 746GB on your new SandyBridge motherboards, it could be because you don't have the latest Intel Rapid Storage driver.

 

Over at Server The Home, there's the answer.

The problem I see with this post is that it appears the BIOS does not see the drive unless the rapid storage driver is installed which I would think would be a problem especially if it is your boot drive. I have not seen this issue but anyone seeing this should update there BIOS first. If your system does not the detect the drive correctly you will have issues as boot drive.
