comment How to delete the Recovery Partition in Windows 10?
I used diskpart with the override command to force deletion of the Recovery Partition. I was then able to convert the disk to dynamic, and mirror it to another SSD as i desired. On the down-side, Windows blue-screened on the next boot because that partition was gone. Moral of the story: don't delete the recovery partition. Just wipe your disk and start over with a fresh install.

@Ramhound I need whatever Windows requires in order to convert a Basic disk into a Dynamic disk. I don't need the full 450MB of that partition back - i only need like 500kB that Windows needs. Strictly speaking i don't need anything - it's the error while converting a basic disk to dynamic. And Microsoft notes that you have to give it some free space.
