Hello mohammedadel, welcome to Seven Forums!

Here's some info below to go along with Option Four of Brink's execlent tutorial listed above.

There is a non-destructive option using an older version of Partition Wizard, in the newer versions this is a paid-for feature; download the pw422 zip file from this link below, burn the Partition Wizard ISO file to CD to convert the HDD back to a Basic disk.
Partition Wizard v4.2.2 Free Boot CD Zip File

The Partition Wizard boot CD requires no input from the user to startup, just boot the disk and let it load; here's the steps once Partition Wizard v4.2.2 boots / opens and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.
