    ASUS Mother Board: M5A88-V-EVO. BIOS:1801.ROM. Is this the latest BIOS, can it support a 3TB hard drive? I am running windows 10?



      I have an ASUS Mother Board: M5A88-V-EVO


      BIOS: 1801.ROM, is this the latest bios?  Can it support a 3TB hard drive?  Can I put a new BIOS chip on the Mother Board to support a 3TB Hard Drive or A GPT BIOS maybe? To the best of my knowledge I believe I have a MBR BIOS.  I am running windows 10.


      Can I run a GPT format on the hare drive if needed to make this work?  I have an NTFS formatted Hard Drive. I need some input on this BIOS to fine out if it is capable of supporting a 3TB Hard Drive, etc...?
