OH NO, you didn`t turn your disk Dynamic did you ?

Didn`t you get a warning message ?

Your disk should be basic, not dynamic

Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

Can you still get into windows ? Can you post a shot a shot of disk management ?

Right, you can`t convert it while you`re using it, but post a shot of disk mgt.

You don`t need another hard drive, you just have to convert it.

You will have to read the Tutorial, very carefully

Get any data you want off it before you start.

Ding! That may have been it, but I seem to recall being able to wipe partitions from disk-boot. You have to hit an "advanced" button that's in there, then all of those extra cool partitioning things magically appear.
