It’s not possible to change from dynamic to basic using Window’s Disk Manager, but you change it using some special partitioning programs like DiskProbe. Otherwise, you will have to delete all your partitions and then convert it to basic.

A MS problem? Why don’t you try a Microsoft solution? Grab Virtual PC 2007 an hage a go. Microsoft is also supplying for their server windows a virtual pc with windows 7. Meaning you and me cannot use it but you can build a virtual machine in an external drive with windows 7 and running it on your pc.:smile:
