    Also:

    Would this have helped at all?

    GIGABYTE Tech Daily: Gigabyte launches Disk Mode Switch utility
    GIGABYTE - Support & Downloads - Utility - Motherboard

    It was released on 3/13/2012, with the following notes:
    (Note) Support GIGABYTE Z77/H77/B75/Z68/P67/H67/H61 series motherboards.(support may vary by model)

    I haven't tried running it (I'm going to try to look for a decent disk imaging software first to clone my system drive first), but would this have been the same thing as changing the registry (which I did, and was unable to benefit from it - no big deal).

    Just curious ;-)

    when formatting the drive in windows with disk management you want to choose simple volume.

    Intel Rapid Storage Technology shows all of my 1 TB disks of 932 GB disks...which is a bit shady. Is this "normal" to have that much not showing up per disk? I thought it may be something to do with the RAID's parity/strip storage location, but my boot drive is only showing 932 GB as well. In the past, of course I've seen capacity loss...just not 68 GB from each 1 TB disk...seems a bit much. Thoughts?
    Don't worry be happy, this is normal.
    The lost or missing memory is because of the way manufacturers rate the drive's capacity.
    1 TB of rated space is one trillion "real" bytes, i.e. 1000 x 1000 x 1000.

    1MB = 1024 x 1024 (1,048,576), so a 1MB rated drive would appear to "lose" about 4.9% of its rated capacity.
    1024 x 1024 x 1024 = ~ 1.074 GB.
    This means that it appears that you "lose" about 7.4% of space when drive capacity is rated in gigabytes.

    My SSD is rated at 60GB and software reports that I have 55.8GB of drive capacity.
    A web search using: missing disk space will provide more details.

    Thanks for explaining that ;-) I actually already knew the conversions for "real" memory ratings (something I needed to do back in the 8086 Assembly language programming days), I just forgot to mention it. I assumed it was due to the striping/parity....just seemed like a bit much. Ahh well ;-) I'm happily up and running and waiting for my Dropbox account to sync up!

    Thank you all very much for your help!

    The kids are now threatening to throw the new PC in the swimming pool unless I give them the promised ice cream sandwiches...from an hour ago (good thing they're still in the freezer)!

    Cheers,

    Neb

    Who or what's in the freezer? The kids? Ice cream sandwiches?

    Yes, that is a 100% NO if you are using the Enterprise drivers. I have not tested with MSAHCI only, or the 10.x-11.5 drivers, but I know for sure you cannot with the enterprise drivers as there is several iastor entries in the registry (See image below) with those drivers and I tried changing them all and none have any effect. I also tried changing other associated entries with no luck there as well!



    @ Nebulocity, glad to see you got this sorted out!

    Thanks! Lots of learning to be had on these forums, for sure ;-) I have no doubts that I'll be back to read more after I'm done horsing around

    It is possible to do the Marvell / Intel dance, I've done it a few times on Z77 and X79 now, I guess you just need to know the hussle to pull it off

    Anyway, glad to see you got it all working properly now! We'll be here, playing and horsing around ourselves, so come back anytime!!
