Sorry, I am going a little crazy.
I thought you had said that one wasn't.
I did originally---but rechecked my calculations.

Both are divisible by both 4 and 4096. Put them into Windows calculator yourself.

The 4 answers are 262144, 256, 26476544, and 25856---exactly, evenly.
You're right.

No prob- we all have those days.
My problem was trying to listen to too many opinions and driving myself crazy.

Just realized it's after one o'clock where you are.
Get some rest!!

I was told that the Partition properties are wrong, due to going from HDD to SSD. Pic enclosed

Everything is fine, so I don't know if I should do another clean install.
The driver installation seems to be my problem on the clean install.

After using the Windows 7 CD and the Asus CD, I thought I was done. WRONG!!

Do I download the drivers from the Intel Site, and is that all I need?

Thanks

Paul
I purchased the Asus P8Z68 motherboard last month which is very similiar to yours. I installed Windows 7 from the DVD, used the Asus DVD and was good to go. I did not have to go to any sites to get drivers. The Asus DVD and Win 7 DVD had all of them or else they came in Win updates. -- Tell me what sections of the Asus DVD you installed. == Why do you think your install is bad?
I did the install of OS, and then used the Asus dvd and when I called Asus,I was told to select ALL. Which I did ( except for Norton)

When I tried to access my radio stations , no audio stream.
When I tried to install my printers, message said - "cannot locate device."

There were other problems in loading websites as well.

My current install seems perfect.
What I am going to do as a test is try another install on a spare hdd and see if I can figure out what I did wrong.

Thanks for your help.
Good idea as a learning process. Good luck.
I was finally able to conquer the "Install from Hell ."
I ran the Windows 7 disc and went to Device Mgr and clicked update drivers with the Asus disc in the drive.
I selected "search my computer" and all drivers were installed.

I then went to Windows Updates and installed all.
I couldn't believe I had to keep checking back every ten minutes and MORE updates were listed.

I thought they would do them automatically.

Anyway, after all updates were installed, everything is great.
My fear of a Clean Install is something of the past.

Here's my latest scores:

Thanks for your interest.

Paul

BTW - the updates also installed my printer drivers, which surprised me, since I didn't have to use the printer cds.

May I ask why you ran the drivers disk from Asus even before installing all Important and Optional Windows Updates?

Did you read Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7? I even reminded you twice to pay special attention how drivers are handled in Windows 7, but you persist in pretending like it's XP.
