o_o wait.... 3 times...? Why doesn't it work the first time?
Also I make everything a primary drive since I don't usually make more than 3 partitions per drive
as much as I hate to do it I am at the point where I am willing to reinstall everything to fix this if the solution is too much of a pain in the ass. I never transferred files from XP to this one yet, just installed a ton of programs.
