How to change a Dynamic disk to a Basic disk

I have added a new SATA disk which I plan to use for my OS by Ghosting onto it from my existing drive.
Unfortunatley I set it up as a Dynamic disk which will loose some of the features I need to transfer my OS to it.
How can I change the disk to a Simple disk or revert it to it's factory settings?

OK sorted it now as there was no data on the disk I deleted the volume in Computer Managment/Disk Managment
Then right click on the drive and select convert to basic.
What I was doing wrong was clicking on the drive box on the right of the window not the label saying the disk number and size. Right click on that and job done.
