W7 cannot have more than 4 primary partitions.

Here is a tutorial on how to convert back to primary.

Video help on how to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard partition magic?

Partition Wizard is the best tool for the job.

If you cannot get it to work, you will likely have to reinstall Windows.

I have no idea if you are using Partition Wizard correctly since you provided absolutely no details other than "i can not recover back to primary".

Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

There is a non-destructive option using an older version of Partition Wizard, in the newer versions this is a paid-for feature; download the pw422 zip file from this link below, burn the Partition Wizard ISO file to CD to convert the HDD back to a Basic disk.
Partition Wizard v4.2.2 Free Boot CD Zip File

The Partition Wizard boot CD requires no input from the user to startup, just boot the disk and let it load; here's the steps once Partition Wizard v4.2.2 boots / opens and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Hello mate.


What I meant is the PW boot disk goes through the set-up on it's own with no input from the user, you must do the actual convert after the program opens that's the reason for the snips to show that process.
