Yes 1). Your Bios is old and does not support larger drives.
or 2).When the drive was fdisked someone forgot to enable large drive support (LBA)

Try these.
Get into the BIOS at boot up and in the auto detect drives page see if it will detect it ok,if yes it needs partitoning properly, if no you need either a BIOS update or the HDD makers install disk which is available at their site.
