Make your C-partition much smaller let's say shrink it to 1000GB. Otherwise the max windows 7 allowes you. Rightclick on C in disk manangement. Right click on it than "shrink volume". Of succeeded succesfully, then

In elevated command prompt:

Code:
 
diskpart
sel dis 0
create partition extended
exit
Now reopen disk management again. You see C is smaller and the unallocated space has a green border. Correct? Create a new partition in that green part. Right click in that green part and "create simple volume". Of course NTFS and assign drive letter to it.

Post screenshot when done

I'm not so comfortable in splitting the C disc, as do not want to have 2 seperate discs.

hl-dt-st dvdrwbd is a dvd drive... not what I meant
run msinfo32
Then see picture. It tells you the disk model

I understand you're cautious. But it's just a shrink and very safe.
But I can understand you don't want it.

I wanna prove it's not an usb issue and not an issue with external disk. I know you have used multiple disks and usb ports already.

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download
The best free backup software there is!! Even better and flexible as win7 own backup! All famous supporters on sevenforums reccomend it. Give it a try. You can even mount the image as explained here How to browse an Image or 'File and Folder' Backup in Windows Explorer

Fails as well?
