On loading Windows, I've been receiving an odd error message in reference to a non-existent "F:System Reserved" drive stating "you must format the disk in drive F: before you can use it." This will occur multiple times per minute at first before eventually going away. Each time the error occurs, this F: drive will appear for a split second before immediately disappearing once more. While this hasn't seemed to impact the performance of the computer in any way, the repeated errors essentially make the computer unusable for the first 2-3 minutes after loading.

Any input on why this might be occurring would be greatly appreciated.

You will find it is the system drive windows created when it was first setup or installed on the system, it should be about 100Mb in size. Its used for the windows install. windows setup creates that space on your HD. you must have something trying to access the drive partition. more likely a virus or malware.
