I can't wait to give this a try. Your instructions are very detailed and sound easy enough. Unfortunately the server is not at my home but at a restaurant close by. Usually I manage it with Team Viewer but I will need to be on-site for this which will be tomorrow morning at the earliest.
There is also another problem which I will have to address later. In the BIOS for the 3Ware Escalade 9500S-8 SATA controllers (I have two cards) only four of the five 1.8 TB Hitachi hard drives are in use. The 5th says 'Not in use'.
I should have done this to start with. I have completed my profile here for system specs. and attached my Belarc system profile as a PDF document and here is my Gravator profile. http://en.gravatar.com/sysopchris
As soon as I complete your instruction I will post a reply here to let you know how it goes. I really appreciate your time helping me out. Thanks so very much!
