ok, my laptop has a 30 gig hard drive. partitioned to 2 15 gig partitions. one having win 2000 and the other having winxp. now i want to remove the 15 gig parition and make the hard drive just one 30 gig partition again. i dont want to format the entire thing and do a fresh install because i have liscenced softwar that would require a new liscence when reinstalling, and getting a new liscence is somewhat of a hassle (plus ive already gotten a new liscence once and they might say no thinking im trying to distribute it or something). ive tried using windows to delete the partition but the delete option is dimmed. and all the tutorials ive seen for XP say i should be able to just delete it. also i think the MBR is on the partition in tying to delete. can i move it to the one i want to keep?
