This is pretty interesting, if you have an Asus mobo, say goodbye to the drive capacity limit. If anyone downloads this, please report back on success...or not ;)

Nice find. I would guess it is a generic extra driver layer that makes the drive appear as two separate devices. Kind of like some 1.2 GB seagates had "Dual-drive emulation" mode. So that might work on ~any other motherboard too, unless they artificially prevented it. And even if they did, perhaps "fixed" versions will pop up somewhere :)
