    How to create dynamic disks using CLI in Windows 8.1

    "convert dynamic" is failing and my specific need is that I have to create dynamic disks as part of testing.
    Whats the command in 8.1 for this??

    Or is this unsupported in 8.1??

    Any pointers will be highly appreciated

    If you need to convert from dynamic to basic, this might work: Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk - Windows 7 Help Forums (I know it's for Windows 7, but sometimes they will work on Windows 8/8.1)
