Windows 7: System reserved parttion won't delete.

08 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit
System reserved parttion won't delete.

I have a 100mb partition from an old windows 7 installation on my 2nd hard disk, which is stopping me from merging 2 large partitions. I used the tutorial off this forum for removing the partition (cmd prompt from repair disk), and it said it had been deleted, but after rebooting it is still here, and still won't delete from disk management.

Any software or tricks to removing the pesky bugger? As far as I'm aware, it isn't even in use.

Sorry for they typo in thread name.. :L And sorry if this is the wrong category
