windows 7 ultimate x64

thanks man i allready start to think that i'm crazy. i had this issue before with sata 2 devices but i allways manage to sort them in order of port numbers. yesterday when I connect ssd on sata 3 and without thinking install win7 i tought maybe that is the problem. now i've done fresh install of win7 on sata 3 ssd where i disconnect all other disks on sata 2 ports and i'm even get rid of 100mb system reserved partition. i must tell that i didn't solve the problem after i installed everithing what windows needs from drivers i connect all other( 3 of them they are all logical drives) disks and they are sort in order of port numbers from 1-3 (disk 0-2) but ssd was again in place of disk 3 containing only one system partition. makes me crazy. thanks
