Windows Cannot be Installed Because the Partition Contains one or More Dynamic Volumes

Since the popularity of Windows 7, many people jump to follow the trend. Of course, I am not an exception, so I buy Win7 and install the operating system through the following steps: (see the screenshot below)


In the window that you can see from the screenshot, I select Disk 0 Partition 1 as the destination partition, and then click "Next" to start the installation. However, a pop-up window makes me very confused. It says that "Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space; the partition contains one or more dynamic volumes that are not supported for installation." I do not know why, and I ask my friends. They say that it is a very complicated question, but unfortunately, they do not know how to resolve it, either.


Although it is a very difficult problem, I am not intending to quit. Then I search on the Internet, and finally I know that Windows installation program does not allow installing operating system on a dynamic disk, so I have to convert it back to basic disk. In this case, if I use the Windows built-in Disk Management, I must delete the dynamic volume to reach my goal. However, there are a lot of data and files in my computer, so it will cost me much time to back up the data. Luckily, I finally find a powerful third party tool, Dynamic Disk Converter, which is specially designed to deal with this trouble. It can convert dynamic disk to basic easily and securely.
