This is why we told you to unplug that drive during the install process, no reason for it to be there.

I answered that question in your other thread you created.

You should not be touching those things in the bios, there`s no need to.

The bios has nothing to do with drivers in the operating system.

Why would you ever even consider disabling lan or audio in the bios, how would you get out to the web or hear your speakers ????

Install Windows on the SSD with the 1 TB totally disconnected.

After the PC is up and running fine on the SSD only, re-connect the 1 TB.

At that point, you should be able to do pretty much whatever you want with the 1 TB--one partition or several. GPT or MBR.

You could use Diskpart to do that if you want to, but you certainly don't need to use Diskpart. You could just use Windows Disk Management or any other formatting/partitioning tool.

I'd just use one partition and I wouldn't worry about whether it was GPT or MBR. There's generally no reason to use more than 1 partition on a data disc, unless you have some unusual situation.

If the 1 TB were instead a larger drive, say 3 TB, you'd want to make sure it was initialized as GPT because Windows will not recognize more than about 2.2 TB on an MBR disc. But you don't have that problem since it is a 1 TB drive.

thats what i was thinking about but it turned out changing it to mbr solved it doing 3 partition on its own and it then just did a primary for both and bios also played a role i have z97 extreme 6 and theres 2 things for hd one boot order and another bbs something showing it i guess the drives i have connected and when i added it there and the other things i mentioned all proba went away ,, i guess eufi isnt for 7 and others said not to do it till 8+ and probs disappeared,
thanks for help still on iphone pain in the ass
