Problem converting basic to dynamic disk
I'm trying to convert my HD to a dynamic disk so I can add a second disk and mirror one of the volumes to provide some fault tollerance. Every time I try to convert the disk, it starts to boot the OS (WinXP Pro), then gives me a stop error and says seesion3_initialization_failed. Usually that's a hardware failure I think, but I'm not sure why since nothing really changed. The next time I boot up after that error it boots back to normal, but the disk is still basic. The HD is in two partitions called C: and . I assume formating the whole drive, re-installing the OS and immediately converting to dynamic before I add all the other stuff that's floating around my system would work, but I'm trying to avoid that. Any ideas?
