gparted can't do it either. He needs Acronis. The free trial lets you make a bootable USB recovery device as far as I'm aware.

You can convert logical partition into primary, which I think is going to be part of the solution here.

also, if you move the boot manager to the C: drive, make it "active", you can delete that 100MB partition if you aren't using bitlocker to encrypt your system drive.

because a 100MB partition is a waste of a primary partition.
