Windows 7: Slave and Logical Partition Problem

Slave and Logical Partition Problem

(For the question skip to the **)

(Please don't say look at the previous post!)

Ok so first of all, I had 2 separate partitions one of them with Windows 7 and the other with Windows XP, so, the problem is that I had a really bad virus on my XP so i booted in to safe mode scanned with AVG/Spybot S&D/Other and after a while the PC made user accounts by itself and everything was crazy.

I just couldn't fix it so I did a clean install of XP on the XP partition again. Then I went back on 7 and deleted XP's Partition and left Windows 7. Then I had to solve the boot manager's problem... done that... now i have a problem.

**I formatted the XP Partition but now I just want to delete it but I can't because it is a logical/system partition and Windows 7 is a slave one. So WTF can I do to solve this!?

Please attach a screenshot of Disk Management.

The system partition must be a primary partition. Because you cannot set an extended/logical partition as active (bootable).
