Windows 7: hard disk changed to dynamic type after using disk management

As Christin dont have a OS disk, and not sure which one is the system repair disk, I hope the downloaded ISO will work there ?

Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc — MAXIMUMpcguides – Windows 7 tips, tricks, help, and how-to guides

Christin, if needed, you download the iso (matching your os is 32 bit or 64 bit; the links are in the middle of the links page), burn it in a blank disk, boot into it, and run Startup Repair , for three times, with restarts after every single run.

But before that, you try rebuilding MBR using the PW boot cd.

Boot into PW boot cd, select the disk (not any partition, but the disk). Go to Disk> Rebuild MBR . Apply , Yes, and restart.

It should be able to boot into windows now.

If now, we are to take the other way.

Select the disk means that what you have shown in your camera snip ... the blue selection over Disk 1.
