I like to vary brands when I buy a new USB flash drive, partly because I discovered that my BIOS can make some like-branded sticks impossible to distinguish at a glance (it lists two of my Kingston sticks as "Kingston DataT" even though they're not the same DataTraveler model).

So I just bought a brand new 3TB Seagate SATA NAS hard drive for my home file server in order to try and boost it's capacity.
The issue i'm having is when I hit alt+f at post to get into my raid bios utility, my new 3TB drive shows up as only a 801.56GB hard drive instead of a 3TB! I paid 120 dollars for this thing and really want to get it working properly.
I tried making a boot-able flash drive like described in the install guide, here, on the wiki.Using Unetbootin - did it - didn't boot from the flash drive (just doesn't work).I thought: Hei, I'll do it again maybe I did something wrong.No way - my flash drive is now 8MB (and it was a 32GB FLASH DRIVE!!).I tried everything, fdisk, diskpart in windows, Killdisk ...
