Hi - I have a newer pc that I'm replacing the hard drive to a 3 TB drive. When I boot up to the Win 7 64 bit DVD, i get to the place where the hard drive options are, and it shows 2 partitions on the 3 TB drive (see attached). The drive is split into a 2gb partition, and a 750gb partition. I'd like to have the HD as one 3TB hard drive with no partitions, and its not allowing me, it wont let me delete either partition. Is this a limitation, or is there something I'm missing? Any help would be appreciated.
