Upgrading system disk from basic to dynamic for mirroring

I have a windows 2k server that I am rebuilding. There are two identical IDE disks that I want to use for mirroring. During setup I partitioned one to have two partitions, and left the other unformatted/unallocated. I understand that I need to upgrade the disks to be dynamic for mirroring, however when I choose to upgrade in storage management, the unallocated disk upgrades no problem, but the boot/system disk warns that I will be unable to boot previous versions of windows after upgrading. If this is the case, how am I to upgrade the boot/system volume to dynamic If I am unable to boot the OS afterwards?

The warning is intended for people that have installed other versions of windows or other OS's on there computer. If you were running a dual boot system, with Windows 98 and Windows 2000 or Windows NT and WIndows 2000, the other OS would not boot.

Great. The server is in a another building so rebuilding it is a pain and I just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
