Windows 7 maximum hard drive size

I have been told that the maximum individual hard drive size for Windows XP Pro is 2tb and that Windows 7 can handle 3tb drives. What is the largest single drive that 7 can handle?

  1. Drives larger than 2 TB need to use a GPT partition which XP doesn't have. In order to use a GPT partitioned drive as a boot drive in win 7 you also need a motherboard that supports EUFI. If you use the drive simply as a storage drive, then you don't need a EUFI motherboard.
