Please, right click computer, select manage, in the left column select disk management and post a screenshot of the window expanded so both the upper and lower part is showing. Don't activate Windows right now.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see anything wrong. bigcroc, I also see you have the Gigabyte driver disk in the DVD. You would be much better off going to their website and downloading the latest drivers, the one's on the disk are old drivers. Please press the windows key (the one with the flag) hold it down and press R. In the box that appears type msconfig, and OK, click the boot tab and see if you see 2 installations of Windows 7. At this point it would be easier to reinstall than to spend the time fixing this, any disagreements?

This is the website for your board, I believe. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=2746#dl

On the website under support and downloads, select driver and then select your OS.

Rob, before you do the clean install, let us know. If you are willing to gamble, I'll try something. Will you have another computer to contact us while doing the install? Also, when you download the drivers, it is easier to download them to a USB flash drive or a CD.

Try running a Disk Cleanup to make sure there are no old system files
Check your alignment just to make sure scroll down to verification
If you don't use hibernate you can save 4Gb of space on your SSD by disabling it.
