I have the Rampage III Formula (LGA1366) motherboard.  I wanted a larger secondary HD so I could boot to a Acronis boot disk and place the backup image on the new drive which is a 3 terabyte.  I already had a 1 terabyte as the second HD.  I replace the second drive with the 3 terabyte.  When I reboot the BIOS does not see the drive.  When I get into windows I have to go to device manager and scan for hardware changes under disk drives to get windows to see the drive.  I did do the disk management,  format etc and had no problems getting windows to see it but it does have to be found after a reboot like I mentioned above.  

I updated the BIOS from ASUS but it still does not see the drive.  If the BIOS does not see it Acronis will not see it so I can't pick the 3 terabyte drive to put the image. Running WIN10 64bit Pro

Any help is appreciated.
