    Deleted System reserved partition on secondary hard drive

    I've had two disks:
    1- SSD drive with OS
    2- HDD with 4 partitions + system reserved

    Because i wanted to get rid of system reserved partition i've deleted and extended one of those 4..
    After that i formated and installed windows 7 x64 on my SSD.
    Right now the hdd partitions won't show up, and the only way i can see those partitions is running windows installation cd, but they are listed as Dynamic and cant do anything about them. The partition i resized appears multiple times, i don't know what to do. I'm desperate here.

    Gregrocker if you are around, please help me out.

    While you're waiting you should post a screen shot of the HDD.

    If you have made 5 partitions you have probably made the HDD dynamic and should attempt to make it basic again. A basic drive can have a maximum of 4 primary partitions.
