I install a 3TB Segate HD in my expansion slot. Plug data cord into the SATA 2 slot.

Product Name: HPE-450F
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I plug data cord into the SATA 2 slot. When I turned on the computer the drive sshowed up that it was only 746.39GB. 

 

Does my mother board model MS-7613 (lona-GL8E) support a 3TB Sata HD. I'm just wanting to use the drive as storage.

@Pat5109, welcome to the forum.

 

The answer to your questions is, it is not the motherboard that is causing your problem.  Win 7 doesn't support hard drives over 2TB.  Here is a guide that will tell you what you need to know.
