I've looked on Youtube and the process of merging two partitions seems really easy. I followed the instructions to the letter but I cannot merge mine for some reason though. The option to extend the main partition is greyed out and I don't know why.
I just installed Windows 7 yesterday on my new computer and I decided a little later on to do a dual boot with Ubuntu. The Ubuntu install came 2nd. When it was installing, it created a 2nd partition on my drive to install on to. After it was installed, the dual boot didn't seem to want to work so I decided to not use the Ubuntu OS and get rid of that 2nd partition.......this brings me to where we are now.
