Recovery using USB?

I recently installed Ubuntu and my Windows 7 partition converted itself to SFS. I want to know if/how I can use the recovery ISO in a USB flash drive so get my partition back? And I know this is a Windows 7 forum but I need to know how to do this from Ubuntu. thx.

You'll have to convert the Dynamic drive back to Basic to get Windows 7 to boot. Option Four here shows how to do this without destroying data: Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

It's been reported the non-destructive conversion is no longer on the free version of PW unless you can locate v. 4.2 which is here: http://cid-24a0e9031e104daf.skydrive...4.2%20free.zip#

PW write to flash stick utility: http://www.partitionwizard.com/boota...ash-drive.html

Write the Repair CD ISO to flash stick using this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srOoGhm-jcI
