I cant delete Extended Dos Partition while logical drives exist. But when I go to delete Logical drives It anwsers me by saying( No logical drives defined)All logical drives deleted in the Extended Dos Partition.And Even when I go to Display Partition Information it ask me if I would want to display the logical drive information.......I choose(y)yes
Awnser:NO Logical Drives Defined
It does show the size of the Extended Dos Partition is 17430.
No Idea on how to go from here your help would be appreciated! Thank you

NOTE: that delpart will delete ANY partiton, so make sure very much before selecting partition carefully, since it will not ask for the confirmation.
