Exclamation Cant install Windows


I need help I cannot start or install WIndows.

Problem started when my HDD, where I had installed windows 8, almost died. I couldnt boot it up so I changed the hard disk priority and could log in my windows 7. I then decided to install Windows 8 in that HDD. I did a shrink of my volumes and made space. Before restarting that PC, I also formatted the drive where I had installed windows 8. (I am able to access files but it has almost died)

Now, when I try installing win 8, it says it cant do that as the partition is dynamic. What is this all about?

I am now running SLAX which is not detecting my HDD so now I cannot make the backup.

Multiple issues..Cant fix them! Please help..
