I made the mistake of turning my HDD from Basic format to Dynamic...

Posted 27 June 2012 - 07:44 PM



Hello,

Let me make it clear that this is a serious problem for me. This is a problem I've been struggling with for the past 10 hours now.

So from the experience, I was trying to partition my HDD for installtion of Ubuntu 12.04 and had no luck installing it before. It would load up until the part where it says install along windows then leave me a message saying "Please take out installtion media and press enter."

Then windows would boot back up.

Then I got a stupid idea to partition my HDD.

I did and for somereason clicked a button that said something about dynamic disk. I was stupid and sturggling so I blindly clicked yes.

Little did I know I kinda shoot myself in the foot again.

Ubuntu 12.04 is garb if you use wubi to install it as it just lags up.

I got nowwhere with the CD installation and now my HDD is stuck in Dynamic which I do not need it in.

I tried using EaseUS but it said that if I continue there might be a chance in an error or malfunction with booting up and I am not taking anymore chances.


Honestly I just want Ubuntu and really don't do any networking at all.

Are dynamic HDD good?? I hear they are basically Software RAID and honestly my laptop can't have two HDD unless they are EXTERNAL.

:2guns: :2guns: :2guns: :2guns: :2guns:


:splat: :splat: :splat: :splat: :splat: :angry: :angry: :angry:

If anybody can help me out that would be greatly appriciated.

:moo:
