Ditto WHS.
I personally would put linux on a separate disc of its own and do a BIOS boot.
I bought an extra SSD for this purpose but for me linux is still just a technical exercise. Windows 7 is fine but maybe not forever!

no, wait a second. Ubuntu does not usually make logical NTFS partitons called Recovery_partition. Seems like a recovery partition made by the PC manufacturer.

You also have around 143 Gb of free space or unformatted partition (the first entry in the list of the screenshots). Select that from Disk management and create a new partition or format as NTFS. Won't delete that partition you want to delete, but you will get back 143 GB anyway. You can leave that other alone, as it's tiny.

Hmm, that is strange. Did you click on 'Apply' (top left) ?? And if 'Delete' does not work, try
Format'. It is a button on the top. but you have to highlight the partition first.
