    My goal was to extend my C: drive by shrinking my D: drive and then using that unallocated space for extending C. I have a single HDD. Using Disk Management, I have not reached my goal yet but in the process I switched the disk from Basic to Dynamic, thinking that dynamic disk would allow me to extend a drive with an area that is not contiguous. (adjacent to C)
    I realized that switching to dynamic disk did not allow me to extend the C: drive. So I wanted to switch back to Basic disk type but I did not see a way to do so in Disk Management so I used a program called AOMEI Partition Assistant which includes a Dynamic Disk Converter. After running this disk converter that supposedly converts from Dynamic back to Basic, I was not able to boot into Windows after restarting.

    At the moment, I am not sure how to extend my drive but my immediate problem is that I cannot boot into Windows anymore. The system boots straight to BIOS even though I have checked the single HDD that contains the OS/boot files is visible and that is in the first boot priority.

    Can you take a look at the screenshots I took from my BIOS and tell me what the issue is?
