Dynamic partition

I am trying to reinstall windows 7 into my unallocated space on my hard drive through windows disk management partitioning. I got as far as i could successfully, according to DM, but then i get a message which could explain it better than I can. What can I do?

Do they use DM boot the installation DVD and let it. Create what it needs you could have a problem if you have too many primary partitions

Post a screenshot from disk management we need to know what sort of partition you have IE gpt mbr. If you install Windows 7 it won't understand tens booting so you will not be able to boot ten after without some work as it can destroy tens boot record. A simple solution is to use free virtual box and run it as a virtual PC

Here it is. I want you to know before i updated my win 10, i had dual OS set beautifully with Win 7 on the same sata hd. The updated win 10 screwed up my system, so i no longer have Win 7, so I want to reinstall it.

Sorry, I did a resize to the next higher choice and its a bit blurry. I am having problems with Win 10, so its a pain even to make a copy.

Now, I enlarged it but this site is not working as far as including a picture. I tried 4 times and the picture would not be included.

Use the snipping tool to save an image to your desktop in PNG or JPG format - then the paperclip to upload the image to the site

Fist of all, why do you want to convert the disks to dynamic?

We still can't see the disk management picture.
I don't think you need to reinstall Win 7. Use Easy BCD to add the win 7 option to the Win 10 boot loader.
