Hi i've just built a htpc and have installed a Seagate 3tb Barracuda drive but i've got a problem i can't seem to sort. I started to install windows 7 installation and go to the screen where you pick what harddrive to install windows on. I wanted to partition the drive into 500gb for windows and the rest for files ie movies,mp3 and so on but i over shot the 500gb to 750gb. So i clicked delete partition to change to the 500gb i wanted but the the 750gb partion will not delete. I even tried to install windows on the 750gb instead of downsizing to 500gb but i get error 0x80042468. How can i get the drive back default size.

Easy one is to slave it and then in disk management delete and format
if you want to carve it up use Diskwizard to make partitions.
Anyway see this
