You still need to convert to Basic disk: Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

Then follow these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

You can create the partitioning you desire during install using the Drive Options depicted in this tutorial: Clean Install Windows 7

Or later in Disk Mgmt: Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Create New

You again have 4 primaries. That means you cannot create any more partitions before you do not convert one of those primaries into an extended partition.

If you ever want to add another partition you'll need to convert one to Logical so you can add as many Logical sub-partitions as you want. Use Partition Wizard.

Are you sure you want the OS partition to be only 30gb? I would want it at least 50gb if not 100gb. Put the programs on the OS partition although you can link your data folders to another partition to keep the backup image smaller: User Folders - Change Default Location
Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
