Windows 7 Partition

Posted on


I am trying to create the new drive from the c drive, I already part the disk. but I have one problem when I want to create a new simple volume.

After completion all steps I got this message :

The operation you selected will
convert the selected basic disk to
dynamic disk. If you convert the disk
to dynamic, you will not be able to
start installed operating systems from
any volume on the disk (except the
current boot value). Are you sure you
want to continue?

After I click finish on box. Then I click Yes to continue, but then there another box appear saying:-

Dynamic disks are not supported by
this operating system or server
configuration. Dynamic disks are not
supported on clusters

Which part I missing? and how to solve this?


You got the first message because you are creating two volumes from one disk. This has to be managed (in this case by LDM) thereby creating a dynamic disk. You then got the second error message because your OS does not really support LDM, and there is very little reason that it should as it has no real need for storage virtualization.
