Windows 7: Boot HDD moved to USB enclosure "working OK " but

Boot HDD moved to USB enclosure "working OK " but

Cannot access the files Disc management says it is Dynamic & invalid Tried on 2 computers

Would booting from this disc get me access? Any other moves that would work?

Linux Lite 3.2 x64; Windows 7, 8.1

Partition Wizard can convert Dynamic to Basic, but I would strongly recommend you do a full disk backup first.
