Re: Problem with Wubi and Windows 7
Dynamic disks generally happen when you already have the limit of 4 primary partitions on a drive and you FORCE the creation of another partition. Linux can't use Dynamic Disks -- these are proprietary to MS.
So, what did you do to cause this? Did you force the creation of another partition and then decide to install using Wubi anyway? Wubi doesn't create a new partition; instead, it installs inside an existing Windows partition.
I would suggest you do the following:
1) Go into Win7 Disk Management and confirm that you have more than four "drives" (what MS calls partitions)
2) If one of the "drives" is empty, then remove it
3) Google for Minitool Partition Wizard Boot CD
4) Download and burn that CD
5) Boot from that CD and use the menu option to convert Dynamic Disks to Basic
If you STILL then want Ubuntu on your PC, consider using Wubi but do NOT force the creation of another partition.
