Well i think actually there should be four partitions, but correct me if not.
two should be in [NTFS] format, and two in [FAT] format
the two that are in fat format are for media, and utilities while the ones in ntfs are for windows, and backup. i would not recommend deleting any of the partitions, except the one for windows. make sure you create an ntfs partition in the empty space immediately and reformat, just to avoid some problems down the road.

Assuming you have Windows XP or later, do the following:
1. Click on "Start"
2. Right-click on "My Computer"
3. Select "Manage"
4. Expand "Storage" if it isn't already and click on "Disk Management"
5. You will see a list of your disk drives. Each drive will have a graphic illustration of each partition or logical drive that it contains. You must first delete the partition or logical drive in order to reformat the drive. Make absolutely sure it is the drive you want to reformat! Once you delete a partition or logical drive, you can't go back!
6. Right click on the partition in the drive you want to format (F: in this case)
7. You will see either "delete logical drive" or "delete partition".
8. Delete all partition(s) and/or the logical drive. If there is more than one partition, you must remove them all. Click on "Yes" if you are asked whether you are sure.
9. When finished, there should be one unallocated partition shown. Right click on it and select "New Partition". Follow the directions and select "Primary Partition", "OK"
10. Select the full size displayed and "OK"
11. Assign the drive letter, presumably "F:" and "OK"
12. Select "NTFS" file system, and "OK".
13. The Windows operating system will begin formatting the drive. Depending on its size, it may take 1/2 hour or more to finish.
14. After formatting is finished, you can right-click again on the partition and set it as an active partition.
15. You're done! Exit out of the Disk Management menus and the drive should show up in Windows Explorer as drive F: (or whatever you selected). If not you may have to reboot.

1) All computer has BIOS ( Basic input/output system). Here, you can set up how your PC will run. It is a blue colored full screen with different tabs like general, exit, devices and many more. Go to BIOS by simply hitting del (delete) continuously after restarting your computer.
2) Once in BIOS, look for the booting set up. Listed there are the devices which computer normally boots. ( Harddisk, CD-rom, Floopy Disk and Network)
3) Place the CD-Rom as the first boot and see to it that the bootable CD of Operating system you want is inserted in the CD-Rom. Then Place harddisk as the second booting device. Third and fourth booting devices are not usually important.
4) Save the changes and Exit. This will restart your computer automatically.
5) When your computer restarts wait until you see a message saying......... Boot to CD........<----if this showed up hit any key to boot to CD. This will make your computer refer to the CD.
6) They will ask you if you want to delete or to create a new partition. For me just delete the partition and do not create anymore partitions. This will only slows your computer down.
7) After Deleting the partitions, they will ask you if you wanted to format you PC. There are 4 choices in there:
a. Quick format (FAT) b. Format (FAT) c. Quick format (NTSF) d. Format (NTSF)
Choose the format either NTSF or FAT. Sometimes quick formatting result to corruption of some files.
8) The computer will copy the contents needed from the CD to your PC and installs it. Windows will appear but i know when you see one you can understand what to do. It will just ask for date and time and user name if you want to.
9) After the installation is complete the computer will automatically restart.
10) Once restarted, set the display in your choice. You can do anything now. Congratulations, you now can reformat
The partitions are listed in neumeric order. Enter the number (1 or 2) the the partitin is listed as, and the partition will be deleted.
Please note, you will lose EVERYTHING in that partition and you will have to reformat the partition.
