I installed Windows 7 (64 bit) on my computer; I was trying to extend the 3rd partition into a logical one to install Linux as a dual boot but somehow my disk ended becoming a dynamic one. I tried reinstalling Windows from scratch, but even the installation process recognized the disk as a dynamic one and didn't let me delete the partitions completely. I tried a bunch of free tools to convert the dynamic partition into basic but it was futile. Is there ANY way to delete everything on the disk, wiping it out completely?
I have Windows 7 on a USB thumb drive, the hard disk is a 2TB SATA.
