Ok mate first some system specs please because I cannot tell how many drives you have or what is connected up when you do the install. If I see correctly there seems to be a some large storage somewhere with a heap of TV stuff on them.

Ok that is LOT of drives my friend - have you tried installing with only the boot drive connected? If not it is worth a shot or at least that is what I would be doing.

How would that salve my problem ?
Millions of people have more then 10 drives
Some have them with raid either software or hardware
So hard to believe that ?

Also so many systems sold with so many drives
For backup and so on

My point is I am not sure why I am getting this issue
And how to fix it

Thanks

Ok why I said to install the OS with just the boot "C:" drive in is because there would be no extraneous devices that may interfere with the install, I wasn't trying to be a wise guy or suchlike, just those things do happen. Plus to try it is just a way of eliminating any possible cause.
But if you say that the install went ok and this only happens after the system is up and running well you can start by running these if you have not already.

Oh and if this doesn't work then try downloading the Partition Wizard and opening it up to view the drives http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-...n-manager.html
