Post a snapshot of a fullscreen Disk Management Window:

To open Disk Management, press Windows key+r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO. Make it full screen. Expand the fields as necessary so everything can be seen.

Only way to really fix it is to reinstall. Thats the only way i have been able to get it to change.
What I would do is back up your files, boot the installer.
