Back up your data first to run Diskpart Clean Command from the installer's Command Line accessed by pressing Shift + F10 at the first screen when booted, which will also Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk.
If you have data on the HD you wish to preserve or wish to keep the Dell bootable Diagnostics partition intact (Recovery partition will not run after a Clean REinstall) then burn to CD and boot free Partition Wizard v.4.22 which is the last one where the Conversion feature was included free: pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live .
Note that you must delete the extra partitions which caused the conversion to Dynamic first. You may only have four Primary Partitions, or three Primary and unlimited Logical data partitions.
