    Could you explain how the G: drive fits into your system? Was it used during the upgrade, is it external?

    Isn't g: usually a usb device? If so.. remove it.. then put it back in later and see if you can access it.

    I think you would have to have 4 hard drives installed to use G: for a hard drive.
