Why can't I make this partition dynamic?

I am using Windows 2000 SP4 . We are using SATA HDD 80 GB. The partitions are as below: Primary partitions 20 GB (C:) 20 GB (E:) 27 GB (F:) 7.45 GB (Unable to Format or Delete). I want to make it dynamic, but I am not able to make it dynamic. It gives the following error in the event viewer:
