  • Hello Chuck,

    First off, you have posted this in the wrong forum section. This section is for Windows Vista. 

    Second, is the other Partition the "System Reserved" partition that is less than 500MB? If so, that is required to be there by default and cannot be removed. Attempting to remove it may cause system instability.

    You cannot delete windows partition being within windows.. If this option is allowed it would be a disaster..If you want you may boot from windows CD/DVD and delete and format windows and reinstall windows..
