If you have the latest BIOS update installed, it might not see it anymore. Nothing to do with Intel. Take a look here.

I need to replace the harddrive in a Acer Travelmate P453 laptop. The unit has InsydeH20 bios, and it will not recognize a new drive when installed internally. Acer support says can use only OE part

This is quite complicated. Firstly InsydeH2O is a UEFI system rather than the well known BIOS. The details can be found here:
UEFI BIOS for Mobile Desktop Embedded and Server Platforms InsydeH2O
and a fuller explanation can be found here:
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface
In particular, you may find that your original disk had a GPT or EFI partition which you may or may not have removed, as they don't show up in the usual way, and they are sometimes necessary for a disk to be bootable with a UEFI BIOS, but of course the disks you have tried won't have one. I would think that a detailed review of the Wikipedia page above might clarify things. With this sort of system I have had some degree of success (not always) with Maxblast 5 for Windows, which you could get from the Maxtor site (haven't tried recently). I put both disks, new and old, onto a separate computer with an existing boot drive, as subsidiary disks, either from the SATA connections on the motherboard (make sure you still boot from the original disk of the separate computer).
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

How do I exit out of the uefi bio utility mode it keeps going back to the same screen when I exit

When it boots back to the uefi bios page there should be some settings tab/s that you can change the boot from uefi only to normal the only other things i can suggest if you dont want to go into those settings to far for whatever reason , when it boots into your bios from uefi mode press f10 or whatever the defualt settings button may be for your bios, make sure you save and exit then aoll should be fine , FAIL THE ABOVE , ITS TIME FOR A BIOS UPDATE !!

Will an Acer Aspire all in one z5600 support a 3TB internal hard drive

From PC Magazine:
At issue here is a limitation that affects storage media larger than 2.19TB in size, and typically requires updated hardware and a post-Windows XP operating system to take full advantage of. (Read PCMag's article "The Problem with Big Hard Drives" for more information about this.)

For computers to recognize drives any larger than 2.19TB, the MBR and the BIOS would have to be replaced. The successor to the MBR is the GUID Partition Table (GPT), which offers 64-bit block addressing, and thus (when 4KB blocks are utilized) a maximum storage size of 9.4 zettabytes (or 9.4 trillion gigabytes). What's supplanting BIOS, which can't read GPT, is the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), which is built on CPU-independent architecture and drivers and offers more flexibility and features outside of the operating system.

Because Windows XP has no support whatsoever for GPT and UEFI, no system running it can natively use any drive with a capacity over 2.19TB. Even if you have a supported OS (Windows Vista, Windows 7, and most flavors of Linux) that recognizes GPT, you won't be able to boot to a drive of that size unless you also have a motherboard running UEFI-something that, as of this writing in late 2010, very few do. All current Intel boards support UEFI, but almost no other major manufacturer has yet followed suit. So, under most circumstances, if you don't have a UEFI motherboard (and you probably don't), you'll have to use your extra-large hard drive for storage only. (There are worse things.)

Finally, your system's SATA controller must also be designed to recognize 4KB blocks. This isn't necessarily a big deal: As we discovered when we reviewed Western Digital's new 3TB Caviar Green hard drive, the company is including with all its above-2.19TB drives a PCI Express x1 Host Bus Adapter that lets Windows use a known driver to communicate with the drive.

How to connect my old IDE HDD to INTEL DH 77EB

Try looking for an IDE to SATA adapter online. I remember seeing one on Newegg. I elected to use an external one that connects to my USB, because it's only storage.

Looks like a nice motherboard.
