I have heard that fiddling with partition structures can in some cases make it difficult to use recovery partitions.
But, I'm no authority---I build my own and don't use recovery partitions.
However, when you went to dynamic, you went into Neverland----you have to get back to basic partitions and hope for the best.
If you had never gone to dynamic, then a simple expansion of C would not affect the recovery partition.
Best advice: get back to basic, hope the recovery partition works.
If it doesn't, hope you can nonetheless make recovery disks.
If not, maybe you can order them from HP?
Otherwise, you can always hose it all and do a clean install.
