The settings will be grayed out if:-

1. the disk is IDE

2. the disk has a snapshot attached ?

Select Snapshot Manager, and select DELETE ALL

(and Be Patient and wait, check you have enough datastore space, and also check the size of the snapshot, to give you an idea, of how long the delete will take!)
