New W7 Install Hangs on "Starting Windows" - Page 4

post #31 of 38
hmmm, I aint givin up............ download gparted boot image for usb and try to use that to convert the remaining 700GB (only this portion) to GPT. I think one can keep a hybrid combination of mbr and gpt on same disk.

nah, it doesnt leave any installer/unpacked files behind.

I tried gparted earlier and could not find any reference to GPT on it. Do you think I missed it or that gparted does not support it yet.

http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ It does support GPT so I will have to look at it when I have a little more time.

I solved it and wanted to let everyone know. I found that I needed to update this file Intel SATA RAID Driver to the latest version 10.1.0.1008. Since I am not using RAID I didn't think I needed this file but I read somewhere that this update will help hard drives even if they aren't in the RAID configuration. So I wondered if the update would help the new drive. Sure enough, now my 3TB hard drive does not cause delays on boot. I have it set as one partition and everything is working normally. It is a great drive and very fast. Thanks to everyone for their help and especially you leopold1985 for not wanting to give up. I have learned a lot.

No I found the drivers on Gigabyte's site. I knew about them before but didn't think I needed them since I wasn't using RAID and they have RAID in their name.

Yep those are the ones I installed. On Gigabyte's site they are called Intel SATA RAID Driver and that is why I was confused.
