Windows 7: Numerous (self-imposed) problems with Win7 install

It didn't work, I'm getting exactly the same result. Partition Wizard won't allow me to modify the disk at all as all the options are greyed out. Do you know if Partition Wizard can handle dynamic partitions?

Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

Try option 2 in the windows repair panel,command prompt.

Then you should finally be able to format the drive:0

Unbelievably I've managed to figure out a way to change the dynamic disk back to basic. From these directions Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk, rather than starting the command prompt at boot, I selected the repair windows option and then selected command prompt from the list of 5 options. Followed the rest of the steps and got it. I think the unallocated space got merged at the same time as well.

I'm feeling so ecstatic, I'm slowly trying to learn more abour computers but this my first upgrade and it was a steep learning curve.

Thanks a ton Dan and ignatzatsonic for the help
