Answers :

This is an ugly situation where the manufacturer has decided that your hard drive should be partitioned into two drives , that really bites !
\015\012
\015\012All that really does is slow the hard drive down.
\015\012
\015\012They have reinstated that policy recently in 2005 to present a very ugly thing for some.
\015\012
\015\012It's supposed to help in those situations where you lost your restore CD
\015\012
\015\012But all it really does is mess things up , as in your situation now.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012You have really only one right thing to do here.
\015\012
\015\012Assuming you have the guts to forget about the manufacturer restore CD or CDs and take matters into your own hands.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\0121. while you have the computer running , download all the nessassary drivers for your hardware
\015\012( all the hardware in your computer such as Video driver , Sound Driver , Network Driver ) and burn them to CD or save them to some sort of external storeage device or online website back up place
\015\012because you'll need them for this next step
\015\012
\015\012
\015\0122. Go get a copy of Windows XP , or Vista , which ever one your computer used in the first place.
\015\012
\015\012most of the time they like to give you XP HOME but HOME is **** compared to XP Pro
\015\012and may not work in all cases, because HOME is more picky about what it will install on.
\015\012
\015\0123. install your new operating system , durring the install you will be asked if you would like to DELETE any extra partitions and create one big NEW partition.
\015\012
\015\012At that point you would load all your drivers you backed up to get you back up and running.
\015\012
