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

See the picture - the options are:
New Simple Volume

Everything else is grayed out.
It shows as Unallocated.

That was clicking on the drive letter.

If I click on Disk 0, I get:

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