Did you boot from the USB, or did the install from within windows? Odd that you couldn't delete it.

Go to disk management, right click on E partition and delete or format. When it's done, extend the C partition into the unallocated space.

If you would look at the snip, C: is a Primary and E: is an Extended/Logical, a Primary can't be extended into Extended space using Windows disk management.




Hello again Vinny, good to see you got it sorted and thanks for the update; sorry you had a hard time getting a straight answer.
