OK. Disconnect all drives except for C drive.

Does Win 7 run?

Did you make a System Image backup?

I'm not talking about a backup where you tell it to backup files and folders, but rather a system image backup, which incidentally makes a a copy of your C drive including all files and folders.

First, the question is do you have one. If yes, then you will be able to recover from any disasters with a minimum of effort.

If you made a system image backup before when you had all drives connected with no grevious problems, then we can recover that way.

I do not understand why diskpart does not see you other drives.

To solve that problem, then we will try booting from a Partition Wizard cd.

Partition Wizard is the only non-MIcrosoft product which I will recommend for partitioning, etc.
Partition Wizard - free download

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

I think though that before we go further, I'll ask a couple of the other chaps who have much more experience with Partition Wizard to guide/advise you on its use.

I will also ask them how it is possible for the bios to see a drive and diskpart not see the drive. Let's hope that I learn something.

Now the large drive is visible in My Computer, but the Computer Management Console will not fully deploy the Disk Management. I reads at the bottom "Connecting to Virtual Disk Service...". Resource Monitor shows only about 2% CPU load. Also, Safe Mode refuses to get past "ClassPNP.exe" file.

Wait...the Disk Management shows now...
I think this is where things went wrong. I have had issues with add-on controllers causing issues just like this especially if you BIOS Flash them. Many times the vendor will change the way the add-on controller works and now the OS will NOT see it, nor will any other OS. You will most likely have to go to the vendorís web site and download a driver for that add-on controller card. -WS
