Can't delete partition

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've had linux installed on my USB drive for a while but I've just removed it, but I can't delete the partition that it was on, how would I go about deleting the partition from windows or linux live cd?

Tried clicking yes, It just says the parameters are incorrect and closes. And it says the same thing.

Edit: Fixed, used the HP USB tool and it restored it back.
