Don't extract the ISO file, burn it to CD using Windows image Burner or ImgBurn. Then boot the CD, follow steps given.

Convert to Primary:

Try converting D to Primary first, which should enable E to also be converted to Primary.

The problem is that D,E and F are Logical so converting E would break up the Logical extended block which is not allowed since Logical partitions must remain contiguous.

How to click on the Disk # is the very first thing shown in this Help video: How to Rebuild MBR with partition magic? Partition Wizard Rebuild MBR Video Help.
