It has become a limitation of BIOS and OS.

The issue is that the MBR tables cannot use 2TB properly for booting and thus why GPT was introduced.

Unfortunately for boot devices off a GPT table you need the UEFI bios to allow this otherwise you need to purchase a small drive for the OS (Which you should do anyways) and keep your OS and RAID array separate then you'll need to make sure the OS you are using works with GPT tables.
