It is likely to allocate the space the partiton needs to be formatted first.
Once you have done this you need to shrink the size of the partition to have it add to the main partition drive size.
If you are running windows 7 then click on the pearl and in the search box type : disk man
You can delete, resize a partition and format one from there in side windows.

I love the "due to some reasons" part.

"Uhh, yeah, I made a mistake and can't fix it, but I had a good reason! No I can't tell you what it was..."

If you don't have anything on the disk work keeping (sounds like you don't, or at least not anymore if you aborted an OS install in the midst of partitioning), then just delete all partitions and create a new one.
