I ran into a problem today. I have a HP pavillion dm4 laptop and it was running windows 7. I wanted to install windows 8.1 and used a bootable usb drive. I did custom install and formatted and deleted one partition. But unfortunately the drive was Dynamic and every other partitions were merged into single one. This not the problem coz I think I can recover the data and I have most important data backuped. The problem is that the OS cannot be installed. It shows the following error message:
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.
I searched for the problem and were some suggestions like setting on the AHCI mode on BIOS. But there is no option for SATA mode in my BIOS configuration. I am in deep trouble.
Please help me.
