Does the ASUS F1A75-V PRO support >(Grater than)2.2TB HDD's?

I have a 3TB HDD that currently is limited to 1.99GB and requires a boot card to run (In a PC slot) so i'm wasting 1TB of nice data.

I already have the ASUS F1A75-V PRO, im installing it tomorrow (it was a gift from a friend) but i'd love to know if its supports my 3TB hard drive and if i can boot from it. I've heard the UEFI BIOS is know to support >2.2TB HDD's but again im not 100% certain as it doesnt say on the main website for the ASUS board.

For reference i will be using a A8 3870K APU, possibly overclocked to 3.4/3.8Ghz
and a HD6970 Overclocked to 950 GPU Clock and 1400 memory clock if any of that helps.

Finally to add, im trying to look at the full spec .pdf file for the motherboard, but for the love of christ it wont open..

One way to find out is to upgrade to the latest BIOS.

Thanks for that, it seems it will then so that brings a smile to my face and i can finally get rid of the boot card! :D 

So, im gussing im going to need this Disk_Unlocker.
I've, shamed to admit never updated a BIOS, is it a simple method of download, let it run .exe and then it restarts the computer and so on, or am im trying to cut an apple with a baseball bat?
