ok this was wierd let me see if i can lay it out for you guys...first off i did get it to work...
Ok it should up as three unpartitioned spaces
one 8 meg
one 19611 meg
one 19619 meg
i figured the 8 meg was the boot record for the 19611 drive
so i tried to install it on the 19611 drive said it was unable to then created that drive as f
i then had to delete that drive only then did it see it as one drive.
but it did...now see how it goes lol...curious to why the newest drivers off the net didnt work while the olders one did...scratches head..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
