    The question is: I have four SATA channels on my intel mother board, I have installed two 4TB hard drives in it and one partitions to the full 4TB but the other will only partition to 2 TB. Is there an operating system limit that is causing this? Is it due to the fact that it is a 32 bit system and there are hardware constraints?

    Have you tried to format them in disk management?
    Yes, I have tried to partition using the windows disk management and it allowed me to create a simple volume of 4TB from the first drive but the second it only allows a 2 TB volume.

    I am not sure by what you meanby "manually" I tried using the windows disk management tool and it did not allow me to create 4TB partitions on both drives (the first one it allowed, the second it only allowed 2TB even though it is a 4TB drive)
