Hitachi’s Deskstar 7K3000 3TB hard drive

leave a comment »

Today, we have another Deskstar milestone: the 7K3000 3TB

To tap the Deskstar’s full capacity as a boot drive, you need to be running a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Vista on a motherboard with a UEFI BIOS. Otherwise, you’ll only have access to the first 2.19TB. Using the 7K3000 as secondary storage doesn’t require a UEFI BIOS or 64-bit OS. However, Windows XP isn’t supported. If you’re splurging on a $180 hard drive for your Windows XP system, perhaps you should look into upgrading the nearly decade-old operating system.
