If you encounter the error message “Windows cannot be installed on Dynamic Disk” while trying to install Windows 10 or 11 on your PC, there are several methods you can use to resolve the issue. One option is to convert the Dynamic disk to Basic disk using third-party partition managers, such as those with Dynamic Disk Manager features. Another option is to use the Disk Management tool or the DISKPART command line tool, both of which are native to Windows. These tools allow you to manage partitions and convert dynamic disks to basic disks without data loss. While dynamic disks offer more features than basic disks, such as the ability to create fault-tolerant volumes and volumes that span multiple disks, they can cause installation issues. To fix dynamic disk errors, you will need to address the specific error message thrown, such as corruption or I/O errors on part of the disk.
