reading through this, the very beginning begs the question... when you first installed 7 to this hdd, i'm wondering why it did not format the drive gpt in the first place. is that because you didn't have uefi booting activated in the mobo bios? I think even with legacy mode, the windows installer of 7 tries (in fact defaults) to format gpt… unless maybe you were using a 7 install disk that didn't have sp1 included?
or maybe the drive you had was already pre-formatted as an mbr disc, and therefor looked like a 2TB drive, and you made a new 300 gig partition in that space, which was built upon?
