I'm installing Windows to update my BIOS. I've removed a previous partition but I can't merge free partition to my original partition. How to solve this problem? I don't want to format the ext4 partition.

The best solution would be using gparted live CD.

Boot up with this Live disk, and follow the instructions to extend the partition.
