HP Compaq Elite 8300 max recognized drive size

I have an HP Compaq Elite 8300 tower that i would like to use as a BDR (Backup Disaster Recovery) and i have found with Dell desktops of this vintage and more recent vintage that they will not recognize a drive over 2 TB even with the on board RAID config. Does anyone know what the limit is on this system.
