Finnaly i got big disk! The Barracuda ST3000DM003.
But it seems unusable... Tried making it it in MBR and in GPT Layout, one as a whole, the other in 2 smaller partitions. But no matter what I do, the moment the drive gets a path, the pc gives me a a BSOD with the following notice:
system_service_exception STOP: 0x0000003B (0x00000000c0000005, 0xFFFFF80003c4e867, 0xFFFFF8800B7721D0, 0x0000000000000000)
I tried also updating drivers and getting a hotfix (wich says: the update is not applicable to your computer), but to no avail.
Other HDD in my PC are Barracuda ST1000DM003 and Barracuda ST1500DL003.
Im starting to think I just got a broken HDD, or am I missing something?

you board does not have UEFI so you will need to get a board that has that
otherwise use the disk as a secondary volume and boot from a disk < 2 TB

I am using it as secondary disk.
And I also tried to to make it into 2 smaller partitions with Seagate diskwizzard, but also then i get the BSOD.
EDIT: BTW... the same BSOD I get when I connect one of my external disks (LaCie) through USB on the PC..

I would think you have a bad usb port or driver if another drive is causing the same problem, are you running in AHCi mode in your bios, if you aren't you need to and also hack you reg so you don't get a BSOD at boot time.

Yes SATA is in AHCi mode.
Why would i hack my reg in order to do that? If i keep the disk connected it gives BSOD in winodws loading process.
How to find these drivers? Im sure its not the USB ports.
Oh and, thanks for sharing some ideas

Cos an IDE loaded Windows running in AHCi mode will BSOD, normally just as the four corners of the logo meet.
If this happens you have two options, re-install or hack the reg which takes 30 seconds to do.
