Foolishly just changed a dynamic boot disk to basic using Easeus free partition tool. Now saying inaccessible on restart. If anyone can assist on what to do now i'd be very grateful!

I think you have just lost the data. you may need to check with physical recovery options

You need to look on the drive first if it has any partition and file system on it.
Use boot CD from Paragon Drive Backup 10 Server Trial: www.drive-backup.com to boot your machine from and look in graphic interface what you do have on this drive now.
It could be that NTFS.sys driver got corrupt or the MBR is a screw. So there is still hope.
Install DB10 - start it - Tools - Recovery Media Builder. It will help to create the CD.
Boot from it the problem machine and select there Normal mode - Drive Backup. What do you see there?

Update. Booted off Win recovery CD. Could see the system partition and files from the command prompt. Ran the start repair which completed without issue...on restart the system partition had completely gone...showing as unallocated space. Can anyone recommend a partition recovery tool? Ideally bootable but failing that i can install another disk with OS and run from within windows. thanks

I suggested you a tool already. Did you make the Boot CD as recommended?
It has an Undelete Partition feature that could help you. Try it. In its interface - right click on free unallocated space and select Undelete Partition. Let it look for NTFS partition. When found - undelete it.
