Windows 7: cant delete my all HDD partitions.

cant delete my all HDD partitions.

I can't delete my windows 7 partition. I tried command prompt and diskmgmt.msc, but whenever i right click the partition it shows the 'delete volume' option in gray and i can't click it. When i did it in command prompt using the diskpart command it didn't work. I used override and i got this "Delete is not allowed on the current boot, system, pagefile, crashdump or hibernation volume" Help me please.

If you are really, really, really SURE you want to delete it. Make a Partition Wizard boot CD & boot from it to manage your HD.

Hello nasminspy, welcome to Seven Forums!

If you were able to delete the partition Windows 7 is on then it would not be able to boot/start, what is the reason you are trying to do this?
