Hi Wayne7846, after a little browse on google, i have found this article with some useful info on initial setup of sdd when installing windows 7.
It DOES NOT address your problem in anyway, but may be helpful in trying to resolve your problem and may give you a better idea of where and what to ask next if not resolved.
You also might want to look over this thread, near the bottom some geezer also has a problem with system not shutting down ( takes a long time so it seems from the thread).
So good reading and good luck :-)
