    Hey sorry it's been a few days but I had to go out of town. I'm actually doing it now, but I'm a little confused about what you said at step 6. So I exited the command window but I should or shouldn't go ahead and reinstall windows ? The way it's stated it sounds like your telling me after I exit the command window to just turn the computer off

    Yes, just turn it off at that point. You don't need to install Windows.

    That's interesting.

    You were able to boot with just disk 0 connected, correct?

    Cool. I'm not sure why Windows isn't letting you convert.

    You can wipe the 3TB drive from the Windows Setup DVD. Only connect your 3TB drive, boot to Windows Setup, open a command prompt, and do:
    1. list disk (make sure the 3TB drive is disk 0)
    2. select disk 0
    3. clean
    4. exit

    Then you can shut down and plug your boot drive back in.
