I'm trying to unlock a 3TB hard drive that I have on the ASROCK Fataly1y Motherboard. I'm running it on a Windows 8 64bit platform. I'm also booting from the drive, but I have other hard drives that I can boot from as well. I'm not familiar with RAID, so I'm afraid to go into the UEFI and start poking around, does anyone know how I can do it?

That is easy, just download the AsRock 3TB+ unlocker tool, and you will then be able to detect it.
Also check updating the firmware of you BIOS before installing.

After you download the ASRock 3TB unlocker, you still need to convert the drive to a GPT http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardwar... so you can format a simple volume to 3 TB GPT Allows a much larger partition size--greater than 2 terabytes (TB), which is the limit for MBR disks
