Clearing the cache (E:\cache\) and the X, Y and Z partitions should help make your games run better.
On the disk size / cluster size front, we may as well cut to the chase. Reformat your drive using XBPartitioner 1.1 (and yes, the version is important!) and that will sort out the cluster size, and importantly will write an on-disk partition table. The link in my signature explains how to do that, and how to check the cluster size. That will allow you to set up F and G properly (or you could just have one large F partition)

Thanks again for the help.

Not related to your problem, but I'm struggling with why you'd want a 10GB G partition. Why not make one large ~390GB F partition?

This is the same hard drive I believe:
The reason for the 10gb partition is just so that I have a working G partition. I mainly will be using F but wanted a minor amount of space on G so when updating things like XBMC I can put a backup copy on G and not get confused as to which things are which. So it is mainly my like a temp drive for myself. Or a manual wastebasket.

Thinking about it, you're probably right. 5 Minutes is a bit too long - mine takes what feels like an age, but is probably only around a minute. The only thing I can suggest is that you check the jumpers on the drive (master / slave / CS, and sometimes there's one about LBA48 or emulating different drive layouts). Essentially, you're now down to trial and error on jumper settings, or try a different cable, or reformat the drive in your PC, scan for errors, look at the SMART statistics, to see if there's anything fundamentally wrong with the drive.
