Confused on the type of Disk setup my new laptop has...(GUID? Dynamic?

Hi Guys

I just got a new Latop.. an ASUS i5 Ivy bridge, G55 (ROG)..

I was tryin to run the usual Partition imaging tool on it to backup its default state. i tried from acronis, macrium, etc.. they all can't detect my drives..

now it says that these free tools (except acronis) cant deal with Dynamic or GUID type disks.. and that i needed to buy the plus pack.

Anyway i investigated my new laptop's drive and in the computer management it shoes that my 1 drive was split into 4 partitions.. in order of:

1) BLANK
2) BLANK
3) OS (c
4) D:


all of w/c shows that i have a basic disk setup..
see: Droplr*•*2012-07-05-574.jpg




ok so im confused.. i wanted to convert dynamic to basic but again my drives are already in "basic" setup..

what gives? so what is it really?

Kindly help...
