In Windows, you cannot have a partition larger than 2TB unless certain
conditions are met.  The partition must be initialized by using the GUID
partition table (GPT) partitioning scheme.  Furthermore, you must have a
UEFI BIOS if you intend to boot from it.  A regular MBR partition and
non-UEFI BIOS won't work.  You would have to start over from scratch.
