if you right click on the partition what are the options?

also, does it show a partition of free space - with no drive letter? - this would be the old D drive

That was clicking on the drive letter.

If I click on Disk 0, I get:
Convert to Dynamic Disk

Can I convert the disk to a dynamic disk?  It currently has 3 partitions, one of which is the boot volume.
