    Can't Delete Partition on X25-M, Win 7 Pro 64, Intel DP55KG

    Born

      Hi All,

       

      New to the SSD and I am building a system wih MB (Intel DP55KG), SSD (Intel X25-M), Win 7 Pro 64.

       

      I was not happy with the first install, so I want to wipe the drive and start over.  Following instructions in SSD Toolbox manual I am suppose to delete the 2 partitions Win 7 creates then use Secure Erase.  I deleted the 1st 100M partition fine, however the 2nd larger partition has the "Delete Partition" greyed out and I cannot click on it and delete the larger portion.  Hence, Secure Erase is not executing as it recognizes the drive as a boot drive.

       

      I am trying to do this by connecting it to my 2nd pc which is XP SP3 and I am connecting via eSATA.

       

      If I could get the 2nd partition deleted, I think I would be ok.

       

      Any thoughts?
