Go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management. Select the partition and delete it. You can then select your main partition and extend volume or reformat it.

Post a screenshot of disk management. The partition likely houses your boot files. We can move them off there if needed.

Alright, you can probably right click on the part with diagonal lines and choose to format it to NTFS.

Yeah, it will boot fine. The system partition is active already and doesn't need any editing or touching.

Hi stillfreefilms

Have you made your Acer Recovery DVD's?

As the DATA needed to make them is in that partition.
