Holy partition headaches, Batman. How did you end up with all of those partitions....and why are they dynamic?

You've got close to 20 GB that could be moved to the end of the drive and turned into a partition. However, you may run into issues since these are dynamic partitions. You also might not get much help, since it isn't legal to install OSX on anything but a Mac.

If it was me, I would stop messing with multi-boot setups and virtualize any other OSes I wanted to run.

Looking at your current, unbelievable setup, I'd be inclined to wipe the hard drive and re-install Windows.

The partitions have been converted to dynamic drives because you have more than three primary partitions.

As stated, you can't install OSX on a Windows computer.

If you want to use both OSX and Windows, buy a Mac and install Windows using Bootcamp.

Only you know why your hard drive structure is such a mess.

As for primary and dynamic partitions, please check this link.

What is difference between basic disk and dynamic disk?

I repeat my previous advice, which is to delete all the partitions, create a new one and reinstall Windows.

If you need extra partitions, you can create three primary partitions, and then create a fourth primary within which you can create logical partitions.

Why did you make a dynamic disk??? dynamic disks are for spanned volumes, mirrored volumes, striped volumes etc.

OSX can only be installed on a basic disk.
Are you willing to convert it back to basic disk? Do you have a win7 installation dvd or system repair disk? A system repair disk can be made from within win7
