Anyone using 3TB harddisk on Linux?
Do you have to use any special PCIe card or vendor supplied drivers?
Is the disk on SATA port or USB port?
Specs for WD 3TB disk says that Linux needs special PCIe card (hinting that
it's chipset issue) which ships with the WD 3TB disk. But, specs for Hitachi
3TB disk doesn't mention about requiring special PCIe card, but does mention
whole other things about GUID partition table, UEFI BIOS, etc.
