    When they get unplugged, they come back up as different letters, and then he has to relink a ton of media and projects get messed up. Some I have assigned letters to, but I don't know if it always works. He usually is under tight deadlines and doesn't let me near his pc unless he has a problem.
    But you've got that Disk mgmt screenshot you posted that shows what drive letters are used for each one. You can set them up again after the clean install because they'll almost all get reset by it.
    Personally, I always give each drive a unique name [label] so I am never in any doubt about which one is which. You have done this for some but not all of your disks so I suggest you do it for every one of them before you do any disconnecting or clean installing. Drive labels do not get reset by a clean install [or by anything else that I've experienced].
    One external drive is Invicta, another is Keint, another is Quips, another is Real, another is Supposed. I'll leave you to guess what their drive letters are. I only connect them when I need to.
    I have all their contents backed up. My OS & internal data drives are backed up twice.


    If, as I think you are saying, there are also some drives that cannot now be read then that can be addressed after the clean install. There is one particular forum member who has great experience of advising others in recovering many such drives.

    Denis - he has so many drives because they are full of video. My husband is a videographer/editor. He works on many ongoing/recurring projects. We used to have a Acera Thunderbolt RAID Storage with his PC. Well it broke and none of the drives appear to even be formatted anymore. He lost 32TB of video. So now he just gets new external drives as he goes along.
    He likes to keep footage for a while because it has saved him many times.... yada yada yada.

    The Acera Thunderbolt RAID Storage is probably a Linux NAS. It is probably a RAID 1 (mirror) array. The information are still on the drives. You may access the information taking out the drives and installing on a Linux machine. You have to search to find out how do it. Win 10 can read Linux drives. That is subject for another thread.

    Let's see if we can avoid a new clean install.
    - Enter BIOS.
    - Under EZ mode set IRST to off
    - Change from EZ mode to Advanced pressing F7
    - Go to Boot Options and set Fast Boot and CSM to Disable.
    - Save and exit.

    During post keep pressing and releasing the F8 to launch the option menu. Select Safe Mode.
    It will boot and install the AHCI driver. Reboot and it should start normally.
    YAY... SUCCESS!!! Thank you thank you thank you! I'm back up :)
    When I pressed F8 it didn't give me option for Safe Mode - Only SSD or Setup. I just hit ok for SSD and it came up!
    It did however say this:

    That is a great idea. I will make him start naming the drives. The ones that have names I'm sure were given to him by someone else. He gets in his own creative storytelling mode and doesn't like to be bothered with, or risk things getting messed up, with technicalities :)

    I will investigate this. Thank you!

    Turbo bust dynamically controls the CPU frequency. Yes, it's good.
    Run Windows Update. It may find the needed driver.

    What do you have on drive 4 (H:)? Is it a OS or a data drive?
    If it is a data drive we need to clean the EFI partition.

    H is data drive.

    Intel Assistant did not install driver, but WU has a lot of important security and quality fixes. Going to install those now.

    Yes, many arrive with a label set by the maker.
    My very first external HDD came with the name EHDD and as I was copying backups etc to it I found myself thinking of it as Eddy. So the next one was Fred, ...

    They are only labels and they have no effect so he'll have nothing to fear.
    But they can be examined by, for example, batch files. I use batch file scripts to do my backups and they start off with checking the names of connected disks then abort & warn me if the expected names for my backup disks are not found.


    Best of luck,

    To clean the drive 4 EFI partition (4.6TB)

    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    diskpart
    list disk <- note the disk number of the 4.6T drive (it should be 4)
    select disk # <- replace # with the drive identified above
    list par <- note which partition is the EFI System partition (it should be 1)
    select part # <- replace # with the partition number identified above
    del part override

    There were quite a few Optional Intel Updates so I clicked and installed them all... but still getting ITBM Driver Not Available.

    Also, the time is 2 hours behind. I checked and set it to time zone auto. Could this be because I replaced the battery? I put in a brand new one.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I synchronized clock and now it displays correct time.

    I followed all options from partition wizard link for “ITBM Driver Not Available” but even after uninstalling program it still comes up and says ITBM driver not available.

    I have to hook back up internal drives to fix partition.
