I'm intrigued. You can access encrypted ext2 filesystems from
your BIOS? What kind of bios is that? coreboot?

Assuming a conformant BIOS implementation, I would expect it
to be able to access filesystems up to 2TB in size. Since most
BIOSes are still proprietary blobs, the only real answer is:
We don't know, ask your vendor.
