Thank You Jonathon King, I just followed your tutorial after building a new system and wanting to get rid of the 100 MB partition in hindsight. Everything went smoothly including the use of partition wizard which I already had installed.

JK,
Might be no big thing for those of us who know a bit about using command prompt, but for a 'noob' I would humbly suggest that you indicate the need to hit "ENTER" after those written commands in your tut.
Thanks for a very informative tut, never-the-less.

In advance:
A Disk Management screen shot using the snipping tool might help Jonathan help you.
1 MB is typical storage space for dynamic disks - hopefully the disk isn't dynamic.

Hi all,when i deleted the 100mb system reserved partition,and now when i go to disk management,i also deleted my E: drive which was empty.

So then i had 2 unallocated drives.one was the 100mb one and the other one was the E: drive.

Then i extended my D: drive and now i have 3 D: drives been shown in the disk management which is actually one when seen in 'my computer'.

Here is my problem. - http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/9779/problemml.png
