Windows 7: Can't remove Recovery Partition

Can't remove Recovery Partition

Can anyone help, i've fitted a new hard drive into my laptop and want to get rid of the recovery partition on the one i've removed.

I've formatted it via Disc Management but the 15gb Recovery Partition remains there.

Is there a way to format it so that i get the maximum amount of disc space.

You can do this on the OLD HD only. ALL DATA WILL BE LOST.

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
Partition or Volume - Create New
