The problem is that you converted your HD to Dynamic which is only meant to be used to span a partition across multiple HD's. Apparently you didn't see the warning message.
The solution to solve this non-destructively is to boot free Partition Wizard CD version 4.2 which is the last one which offers this as a free feature: pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live.
Download the ISO, rightclick to burn it to CD using Windows Image Burner, or use ImgBurn.
Boot CD. You will need to delete the extra partition(s) you created which tipped it to convert to Dynamic before it will convert back to Basic.
Then follow these steps: How to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard?
