ok I need some help, I just recently got a laptop from dell, it obvoulsy has vista on it. my problem is, its a 60gb hard drive with a 10gb recovery partition making the drive 50 gigs. I have tried to merge it using the built in disk manager, but the "extend space" button is grayed out. so I've tried formatting it (I really dont need the recovery partiton because I have a 80gb usb drive) then using the extend space thing again and it is still grayed out. I restarted my laptop and it wont boot because it says the boot manager is missing, so I used the vista disk so fix that now, but im still stuck with that 10gb recovery partition. Any suggestions on how to merge that partition with the main one.
