Windows 7: Dynamic and basic disk issues

03 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Dynamic and basic disk issues

Hey all,

I'm setting up my first dual-boot system with Kubuntu from Windows 7 Pro x64 and Disk Management is only offering me the option of creating simple, spanned, striped, mirrored or RAID-5 volumes instead of primary partitions. My understanding was that those options only showed up on dynamic disks, and that dynamic disks didn't allow more than one OS. Got any advice?

As a sidenote, I'm looking a Disk Management and I've got a 300 MB partition for "BDEDrive". Does this have something to do with Bitlocker? If so, why would it be on my Professional OS?
