Windows 7: Unable to format hard disk

If you converted to Dyanamic you may lose bootability at any moment. If so download and use Windows Image Burner to burn to CD pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live, boot CD to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map and listings:

1. Type Disk Management in Start Search box.
2. Open Disk Mgmt. window and maximize it.
3. Type Snipping Tool in Start Search box.
4. Open Snipping Tool, choose Rectangular Snip, draw a box around full map and all listings.
5, Save Snip, attach using paper clip in Reply Box.

Tell us what is on each partition. Tell us what you want it to be.
