Can't boot from an OEM Recovery, error : can't boot from dynamic disk

I have a sony Vaio laptop VGN FS515 H.
I want to use his Recovery Tools by pressing F10 when the laptop boot.

The problem is that the recovery partition (OEM) won't boot and an error message says :"that my partition of my Hard disk is dynamic and it should Base in oreder to let the procedure of recovery begins.
I used utility like EaseUs and Partition Wizard to change my hard disk from dynamic to Basic ,
but They don't do any thing.
I checked my hard disk it's always dynamique, and I can't boot from my recovery

How can I solve that issue?

When, how, and why did your hard drive become a "dynamic disk"??

It should be "Basic" in nearly all situations.

Exactly, I say exactly, what happened when you tried to use Partition Wizard to change to Basic?

the problem began when I tried to install a linux distribution and the process was aborted during the install.
I lost one partition of my hard disk.
And I used EaseUs Master Partition Recovery to get it back .
I think that issue has changed the nature of my hard Disk.
In Partition Wizard : I Right click on the Disk of my hard Drive , then I click on Convert Dynamic Disk to Basic Disk.
I click on Apply then Partition wizard tell me that in order to change my hard disk to Basic I must reboot (a warning says that I may loose my data so I must save my data) so change take effects .
I reboot and nothing happens .
My recovery partition still having the some troubles I can't do recovery by pressing F10.end of the story
