Hmmm... That one I've forgotten. It was quite a long itme I tried to do this. Anyway, as the BIOS is only used when booting they probably should be set to report the disk as smaller than it actually is. After booting the BIOS isn't involved so that restriction should not apply. But I'm not sure. You could maybe make some trial-and-error investigation on what works and what does not? As Mike (I think it was him) wrote, you could also buy an ATA board with BIOS. That I've done that several times and it works great! Good luck!
