Windows 7: Win7 64bit RTM Image recover and Partition

In Disk Management , Rt click it and give it a drive letter.

You would be better not trying to alter/extend/delete that partition.

After you have given it a Drive letter, I suggest you use the free version of Macrium Reflect to image your drive/partitions.

It is much better than Windows Complete PC Image , imo.

Or if you don't want to include the System reserved partition alongwith C drive, follow this:

Boot from the DVD and reach the installation screen.
Create a partition to install windows 7. By Default, it will give you prompt to create a 100 MB system partition. Click OK.

Now, delete the new partition where you were about to install Windows.

Now click on the 100 MB system reserved partition and Click Extend. Now give it a size and there you go. Click NEXT and you'll have a single partition where you can install Windows 7.
