I have an Asus EB1501 Intel Atom 330 / 1.6 GHz / Dual Core / 2gb RAM / 250gb HDD / Win 7 Home Prem.
I want to install Zorin OS along side Win 7 as a dual boot but cannot because all partitions in the disk are Dynamic. Partitions need to be Basic to perform installation.
I have read tutorials to convert partitions which require one to delete all dynamic partitians and then convert the disc to basic but that will mean deleting everything on the disk. Simple enough but the tutorials stop there with no instructions on what to do thereafter.
Is there a stress free way of converting the disk from Dynamic to Basic? Some clever freeware possibly?
Would a system recovery from a system image also change the disc type to basic by chance?
Some detailed guidance "KISS method" would be greatly appreciated.
