    I was messing around (which I shouldn't have) and trying to create a extended partition in Disk Management. I thought you had to convert the basic disk to a dynamic disk. After the coversion, well, it create an unallocated 8mb volume that I can't delete. Now I can't convert back basic disk because of that unallocated volume. Can't do anything in Partition Magic either. I wanted to create another partition, now it seems like I can't do much. Please help!

    What error is it giving you when you try and convert back to a basic disk?

    and don't forget that converting dynamic to basic destroys all data.
