    Cannot install on selected partition

    When I try to select the partition on which I want to install the WCP, I get the following error:

    Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition contains one or more dynamic volumes that are not supported for installation

    Below is a screen capture of Partition Manager (Windows 7)

    Is the a way to fix this partition?

Hi all, Just a quick question...Is it possible to install the windows8 developer on to a separate partition on my hard drive? Does it give you the option when you go to install? I am sure I read somewhere that it doesn't but wanted to make sure before I try anything. Thanks
