Thanks guys for the support. Even though I am moved to relegate this whole mess to the corner of the garage I am not one to give up easily... just put it down awhile then go back to chipping away at it!
idahjo, I should not post late at night after taking medications.
I missed the part where you wiped the drives.
I will punish myself by sitting in the corner with my back to the 'puter for 1 hour.

Did a Work-Around

Cleared the CMOS per manual and still there. Time to move on... Did a work-around in the BIOS by forcing the boot from the C Drive (OS). THAT appears now to having everything setting up properly. I know there is a 'poison pill' implanted in there somewhere but I think this is going to make all appear OK on the surface.
ACRONIS TI-13 is coming off my computers, I have totally lost faith in the program!
Thanks to everyone who responded, Idahjo
