Good grief, Mike. All I want to do is query 4K status to confirm the drive is using Advanced Format Generation One sectors. There are a bunch of discussions regarding setting individual file and folder permissions, or permissions for the entire drive, but none that resolve the permissions issues of the command line utility. I've already set the account for full permissions from within the security tab of disk management. Tell me how to log in as admin if that's part of the solution.

Type up "cmd" in the Start Menu Search and either press CTRL+Enter or right click on the icon and select "Run as Administrator".

The good news is I got into fsutil following your instructions. The bad news is that it installed with 512 bytes per sector, which I'm pretty sure means that it's in 512e emulation mode. Why, oh why would it have done that? It's a UEFI board, installed from a DVD drive in UEFI mode, everything in the UEFI BIOS set to UEFI first or UEFI only, AHCI mode...all partitions set up in the Microsoft recommended configuration, AFGO supported hard drive, GPT and 4K supporting OS. Whyyyy Steve Ballmer, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I just did another clean install without all of the disk partition finagling I did in the last install. Guess what. 512e on a disk that by default supports 4K. How do I get the drive to install Win8.1 in 4K mode?

EDIT: I have one of these: Model: ST3000DM001-1CH166, Firmware: CC26

There may or may not be a lack of support for 4K on the drive, I've been unable to find many forum posts anywhere that address 4KB installation fails, let alone ones that mention my specific drive.
