dynamic disk - help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Changed to dynamic disk in Vista, only one OS three partitions so it should have been OK.. But apparently not because now when I boot it comes up with Cannot find Operating System....

Is there anyway to fix this or will I need to reformat?

Eh that happened to me. I was on my way back to XP so I reformatted.

Stick the Vista DVD in there and select REPAIR

Why am I thinking that Vista should have prevented you from hosing your system this way?

Uh guys I got a rather large problem, I need to wipe out the dynamic partitions.. In other words delete everything on the entire HDD, but vistas DVD program is a POS and cannot do it, neither can ubuntu (fails to load because of the dynamic disk) or xp...

How the hell can I do this?
