    Maybe merge the unallocated space with the Primary drive ?

    MiniTool Partition Manager Software for Windows PC and Server

    Maybe someone else has a better idea.

    I understand that the problem is that i deleted system partition too. So if i want to instal windows i have to create that partition but it's not possible.

    Oh.
    I see.

    It seems to me you could use another computer to get an ISO & use it to install.
    It should create its' own partitions.

    Get tool here to create ISO.---

    How is your system booting ?? UEFI with GPT partitions
    Or MBR

    and what is the reason you choose or can not delete the 400GB partition
