Dynamic Partition Problem During Windows 8 Installation

If you try to install windows 8 on dynamic partition, you will get message “Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The Partition contains one or more dynamic volumes that are not supported for installation”. If you have one disk(only one hard drive and all the partitions are dynamic) running Windows 7 and want to install Windows 8 on another partition, you need to convert the disk from DYNAMIC to BASIC. This article explains how to convert it without data loss (format).
