cadnyc, thank you for your post;
the 39MB and 2GB partitions are for their diagnostic tools.  You simply right click the partitions, the choose delete, then right click the "C:" partition and choose, "extend volume"

- You cannot extend "backwards" ... you can only extend from left to right.
- The 39MB OEM partition is required - it (some reserved partition) will be created with any Windows 7 install.
- Did you delete any other partitions (like a Recovery partition)?
- The only way you can get rid of that 2GB block of Unallocated Space is to use a partitioning tool that might be able to move the partitions ... or image/backup, repartition, restore.

It states it can "move" partitions, which is what you would want to do ("move" it back - to the left - 2GB).

Partitition Magic has not been updated for several years; I once found a page that said it does not work in Windows Vista, and therefore not in Windows 7 either.
