Install SATA 4TB HDD in HP Z2 SFF G4

HP Z2 Small Form Factor G4 Workstation - HP Z2 SFF G4 - Ref:4RW90EA#ABE
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have bought a Seagate Barracuda 4TB SATA HDD ST4000DM004 but it didn't appear at Device Administrator nor at Disk Administrator windows, so its impossible to format or define volumes.

It does not also appear at BIOS test and configuration management whe hits F2 or F10 at start-up.

I know that Windows 10 has a limit of 2TB adressing capacity but at least it should show a 2TB HDD but it looks like it doesn't exist.

There is a secondary issue. When this HDD is conected to SATA port the DVD reader/writer also desappear from the BIOS manager.

When this Seagate Barracuda 4TB SATA HDD ST4000DM004 is located in an old HP Compaq dc5700 SFF with OS Windows XP it appear witk the 2TB limit.

Can someone give me some guiding about what can I do?
