I don't know. I mean, that seems to contradict what was posted on the drivers, which came straight from an Intel posting.Maybe he just looked up the product and none of the driver updates to know for certain?
Intel Rapid Storage Technology, version 10.1 adds support for hard disk drives with capacities greater than 2 terabytes in AHCI mode. It is important to note that booting to these larger capacity hard drives also requires an operating system and UEFI BIOS that supports booting to a GPT partition. If the system does not meet these requirements, these large capacity drives may only be used as secondary storage. Intel is planning to add RAID mode support for these large capacity hard drives in a future release.
Note: Before installing this application or requesting technical support from Intel, it is suggested that you first contact your system manufacturer. They may provide software which is specifically configured for your system.

I really don't know what to tell you
. I can't blame you for being apprehensive.
