    Using a Dynamic Drive in a Normal Computer


    I have a Dell T3500 win10 computer using MBR, and attempted to connect a win7 dynamic drive as the second drive. It is not recognized. I went into Setup and verified SATA1 was turned on. I connected it as the only drive and it went through a repair sequence and was not successful. The drive has been in a drawer for years, and it seems unlikely it failed. I can continue, trying it on a 3rd computer etc., but wondered if the fact it is a dynamic drive could be the issue. If it works, I'll change it back to a normal drive, install an image of the current drive, and use it as a test drive when partitioning

    After Full Scan with windows defender i got problem to remove Trojan:win32/Dynamer!ac

    Trojan:Win32/Dynamer!ac threat description - Microsoft Security Intelligence

    If Windows Defender will not alleviate this problem, recommend you follow the suggestions in this free multi-step removal guide from Malwaretips.com. The removal tools/procedures are free. Remove Trojan:Win32/Dynamer!ac malware (Virus Removal Guide)

    But…

    If none of the other tools listed in the Malwaretips guide identify any malware, you are using an HP laptop and the alleged malware detection by Windows Defender is listed as
    being in the “D” Drive on the laptop then you may be seeing a “false positive” detection. Should you determine you are probably seeing a "false detection"
    suggest you post back in this thread with further information.

    Good luck…

    how to change Dynamic drive to primary drive !!

    Hi All,

    Hope you are doing well !!

    i want to convert Dynamic drive to Primary drive without losing data.

    currently i have 4 drives (See below screenshot), i have one empty drive called windows servers 2012. so i would want to install windows server 2012 on that drive. when i was trying to install windows server 2012, all drives are showing Dynamic drives
    and i am unable to install OS on dynamic drives.

    Using a Dynamic Drive in a Normal Computer

    How do I reformat entire computer?


    Update:

    • I probably should have taken better notes on what I've already tried
    • I created the USB flash drive as directed in #26. That did indeed install W10
    • I now am at the same point that I described in my post #6, with my drives still being dynamic rather than basic and the following exceptions from my post #6 (not sure)
    - Now all of my data is on the C:\ drive rather than the various folders like "My Documents
    - I apparently need to reinstall my display driver. The display is wonkey (circles are ovals) and I can’t seem to adjust using the settings menu.
    - Other partitions that came installed with my HP notebook like System, Tools, and Recovery now have different drive settings

    So I’ve come almost full circle except with a few steps backwards. I’ll try more carefully to follow Post #2 and #7 as suggested. Possibly I missed as step with those earlier. I’ll also check with my other software to see if there is a simpler way to revert my computer back to the way it was out of the box.
