    hey by mistake on creating a partition of hard disk i converted it to dynamic hard disk.i was unable to start window. i installed windows (professional) over old window ultimate.now i am able to start window but all partitions are still dynamic. how to convert back into basic hard disk without loss of data and reinstalling windows.
    since windows is working perfectly fine is there a need to convert it back to basic??

    i have installed ubuntu in local disk (E) .

    did u try right click on computer icon and choose "manage"
    then in disk manager, choose the disk name (not the partition) and right click, you should have an option to convert to basic disk

    also converting from basic to dynamic and vice versa wont make you lose any data
    but
    dynamic disk disable multiboot os, so if you need to have a multiboot, you must keep all disk to basic

    What if "convert disk to basic" is greyed out?
