I have a dual boot notebook. Win 7 and Win server 2008. Now I have a problem with disk space, so I plan to delete partition with win server 2008, so I can gain more disk space for win 7. Haw I can do it in windows 7 ? I try using EASEUS partition tool, but it not work.

Did EASEUS give any error messages? When errors exist, be careful with forcing the delete. –  harrymc Dec 17 '10 at 16:27
    
EASUS can't delete it because delete menu was disable. it's status is system, any idea? –  aldi Dec 17 '10 at 17:15

You need to see if your boot partition is correctly set first. If not, deleting the partition can render your system unbootable.

If you want to do it in windows 7,

Control panel | Administrative tools | Computer management

Select Disk Management from the left and do whatever you want there.

If server 2008 was installed after W7, then use disk management to delete the partition, then reboot, if it does not boot, use a W7 DVD to do a startup repair.

Then all you need to do is remove the 2008 install from the bootloader.

Here is the screenshot he linked to, not much help, we need the entire shot of disk management.

If nothing else works, try also Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition.
