IF you make "this hdd without any partitions" -- that means wiping the drive entirely, removing everything on it. Is that what you really want to do?

To be useful, a hard disk MUST contain at least one partition.

Would be better if you told us your end goal with this hard drive -- then we could advise you regarding what to do.

In that case you'd want to delete the Logical (green) Volume Free Space currently holding a space for a Logical partition you don't need.

After you delete the Logical volume it will change to Unallocated space and you can simply Extend C into it by clicking Next on every choice in Partition or Volume - Extend

If any further probs post screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Forums
