Windows 7: Dynamic and Primary Disks

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Dynamic and Primary Disks

Hi I recently made a disk for dual booting windows 8 and when I did all the other disks became and Windows 8 one became dynamic I thought it would still work but when I tried installing Windows 8 on the disk I wanted to install it on it said I couldn't because it was dynamic. Is there a way to make the dynamic disks back into primary?
