File system will still be NTFS. GPT is a partition table formatting scheme from what I've read.

Hmmmm. You make a good point. Maybe that is it. But the problem is when I can use all 3TB then my boot up is ridiculously slow. I think I will keep it as a 2TB drive then. It is working fine now. But you may have solved this mystery for me. Thanks. I appreciate it. I guess there may not be a workaround. It is just slower loading the GPT or a larger drive.

I've had this same problem. To be honest, I tried everything! Different cables, different DVD drives, different this and that. Try disabling Floppy in your BIOS if it has it! Worked for many people. For me, it was a failing hard drive lol.

Had the same problem once.. took like 2 min to boot up.. the problem was in extended card reader.. disconnected it and comp booted up in few seconds.
So my advise is to disable all unnecessary equipment... mouse/keyboard/card readers

I am a bit uncertain....... did my idea work? If it did, then why are you not using the remaining 700+GB. Does the boot up still slow down when you partition and use the 3TB as two parts ---> 2000GB + 700GB or 1000GB+1000GB+700GB

If it works, then you wont have to keep the 700GB unallocated.

Windows X64 is naturally a larger OS and can take longer to install
http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...vs-32-bit.html

You can also run a prog called BootRacer which will tell you exactly how long it is taking and give you a "rating".

Don't feel too bad though, boots are just as slow on a Kingston 64GB V SSD and didn't improve in RAID 0 and I've had them for a year or two now. I however did see much faster boot times into Linux

I also had a ton of issues over the years from failed POST and others from USB devices. Sometimes a good unplug solves some issues, just ask Bill Gates while he was trying to demo plug and play USB.

Yes your idea did work. I guess I am not using the extra 746GB because I was just happy to get 2TB working without a boot delay. If I can get the other unallocated partition working then that would be great. I right click on it though and there are no options that look like I could use it. I am not sure what to do to get it working. I am also not sure that if it does work if my boot will be back to taking so long. I'll try to research how to get this partition working and see what affect it has on my boot. Thanks again.

I actually went to the trouble of installing a clean install each of W7 Ultimate 64 bit and 32 bit. I timed them and they were very close if not the same but this was on my SSD. That might make a difference. From the test though I found out my problem was not W7 but the 3TB HD. Thanks.

If there is no "FORMAT" option on the right click menu then please boot the computer from the win7 disk and when it shows the disk partitions, select the 700GB one and delete/format it. Then cancel the win 7 installation and reboot. Now it should be usable and if not, then you will be able to find and format it from the disk management ---> my computer, right click---- manage--- storage--- disk management........ right click the 700GB space and format it in NTFS. I hope this will work.

Thanks for the idea leopold1985. I did as you suggested and those options delete and format were not available, in other words not highlighted. I think unless it is GPT, windows won't recognize it as a 3TB drive even if partitioned. I clicked on "new" which was available and I got this error message "failed to create a new partition on the selected unused space. [Error: 0x8842468]"

One thing I was wondering is when you go to that point in a windows install does it leave any temp files on the C drive. I have an image from which to recover but was wondering if it made any alterations. I like to keep my computer clean.

Thanks!
