Can't delete Hard drive partitions while in the middle of installing win 7

Hi everyone, Im trying to clean install win 7 on my desktop. I restarted the system and got into the boot menu and selected my flash drive to boot from for clean boot. after completing the initial steps, i reach this window where it asks you to select a drive to install the os. Im trying to delete both partitions as i want to allocate 100 gb for c drive which is now 34 gb. but the delete partitions options under advanced options is grayed out. How can delete these two partitions?

    Is the delete option still grayed out when you highlight/select a partition?

    Yes....
  3. Can you format the partitions in windows install? If you can then maybe you will be able to delete them afterwards.
  4. I have formatted both the partitions, but im unable to delete them.
  5. You might have to get another 3rd party program to delete the partitions. Partition wizard is a good free app.
  6. Ok thanks! Will try that now... :)
