Re: Invalid Harddisk
I am also experiencing the same problem. From within MMC the hard disk is
listed as "dynamic Disk Offline". When I right click on it the only menu
items I have are "Convert to basic disk" (which will delete all my data)
"properties" or "help". There is no option available to import a foreign
disk. From within DiskPart ican select the disk (disk 1) however it will not
allow me to bring it online.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
