    How do I delete one system reserved partition in dynamic


    So I was trying to reinstall windows 8 and screwed up, long story short I have two system reserved partitions, one on my 24gb ssd and one on my 1TB HDD. Windows is installed on my HDD, and I need to use the ssd as a cache, but in order to do that it needs to be cleared, well, because I accidentally converted it to a dynamic disk. So, after reading tutorials, I am stuck with trying to reformat it, but It has to be cleared, but in order to clear it I have to reformat it ):

    From your screen shot, I assume you want to delete the first partition of Disk 0

    Open the Admin Command Prompt:

    1. diskpart
    2. select disk 0
    3. select partition 1
    4. delete partition override
    5. exit


    OR:

    Since the second partition is unallocated. You might as well clean the whole disk, after step 2 above
    Type: clean
    Type: exit

    I didn't notice that you had the disk as dynamic and that's why the first part did not work. 2nd part basically re-initialized the disk.
    Any way, you got it sorted.
