Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Greg, when I extract that, it's not an iso. How should I burn/run it?

That's because it is the Home version which you install to Windows to try the same thing. It will reboot to complete the conversion.

Rightclick to Extract the files to run Setup as Admin.

If this fails then you'll need to use one of the other methods given here: Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

Back up your files first.

Try the installed PW app which we've also archived for use here: partition wizard 4.2 - Windows Live

Thanks to Jonathan and SIW2 for hosting these.
Yeah, you are correct Greg. Something strange is going on here. After I used your recommendation, which worked perfectly, I moved important files from my original HDD, to my new secondary. When I used Disk management to delete the volumes and reformat that drive, it showed that it was being reformatted for use with Windows Server 2010. I ticked the drop down an the only other option was server 2008. Don't know why. I Have a 7x64 Premium disk and SP1 update. Anywhoo...

Currently Imaging SSD and secondary drive to the backup drive. After that they will backup as well. Everyone's recommendations have helped tremendously. I appreciate each and everyone who helped. Your knowledge and heart for doing this is unmatched.

Thanks, as always, 7 Forums

64gb usb
Can anyone recommend a good USB? I don't know how to decide whether a USB is good or bad. Required Specs: Must be 64Gb. Max price of 30. Quicker the better since I will be doing my coursework and saving large CAD files. Lastly must be from Amazon since I have a gift balance to spend.

Hi, I am about to purchase my 1st SSD and on checking the file sizes I can get all of my O/S, programs and regularly accessed data files onto a 50gb drive. From my limited knowledge of SSD's it seems that something around 64gb with TRIM and an Idilink or SandForce controller might be OK. As...
