I recently bought a new Asus laptop with Windows 8 on it. After a week of hating it, I did a clean install of Windows 7 on the machine. I had to disable SecureBoot in the BIOS to even be able install Windows 7 from disk. Anyway, the installation went fine, and I'm running Windows 7.
In Computer Management in Windows 7 I found an old OEM (EFI System) partition which I would like to remove. But I want to do this without formatting the entire drive, as Windows is now working really well.
This is my current setup of partitions. I want to merge that first nameless partition with G: if at all possible. Computer Management doesn't allow me to do anything with that locked partition.
I tried to remove it with DiskPart.exe With this tutorial
But it told me I could not remove system directories.
Is there anyway I can keep Windows 7 working, but remove that annoying locked partition?
