The problem is that you converted your HD to Dynamic which is only meant to be used to span a partition across multiple HD's.

Apparently you didn't see the warning message.
The solution to solve this non-destructively is to boot free Partition Wizard CD version 4.2 which is the last one which offers this as a free feature: pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live.
Download the ISO, rightclick to burn it to CD using Windows Image Burner, or use ImgBurn
Boot CD. You will need to delete any extra partition(s) you created which tipped it to convert to Dynamic before it will convert back to Basic. You may have only four Primary partitions before needing to convert one to Logical to add more.
Then follow these video steps: How to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard?
After conversion you may need to repair the OS to get it to boot by using PW CD to Modify>Set to Active the 100mb System Reservd partition, then run Rebuild MBR
. If Windows 7 doesn't start run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
from Windows 7 DVD or Repair CD.
