What happens when you start tapping F8 as soon as you turn on or restart the computer?

Do you have your retail Windows 7 installation disk or system repair disc in the DVD drive when you restart the computer?

Hello TheGuy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The real problem is that you converted your OS disk to Dynamic. This will render Windows unbootable now. You can use the free EaseUS Partition Manager Home Edition to convert your Disk 0 back to Basic. The guide at the link below can help show you how to with this program.

Convert dynamic disks to basic in Windows XP/2000/2003/2008/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8 without data loss.

Afterwards, see if this tutorial below can help you convert the unallocated 39.06 space to be a logical partition without converting the disk to Dynamic. The program above may work nicely to do so as well.

Partition / Extended : Logical Drives

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yeah, it was only a reference from your first screenshot.

You should see Convert to basic disk when you select and right click on the actual smaller Disk 1 Dynamic MBR section at the bottom left, or select C: (disk 1) at the bottom and click on Disk (menu bar). If not, could you post a screenshot of the options you have instead?
