Hi guys,
I am trying to install Win7 in dual boot. I have 5 "Simple Volumes". I formatted one of these of size 56GB to install Win7 here.
Now I enter Win7 setup. It doesnt allow me to select this volume for Windows installation. When I select this drive, it says something like "Windows cannot Be installed in this volume. This volume contains one or more dynamic volumes on which installation cannot be done"
It only allows my C: to be selected where Vista is already installed.
Below is my computer mgmt screenshot. Please help me guys. I wish I could dual boot with Win7 and Vista.

Hi men, try passing the data files to the partition when you want install win 7 and install win 7 where you have tha files. Maybe is 'cause the partition is an extended partition. Remmember that windows only can be installed on primary partition.
