Trying to Merge one partiton with another

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, I started with two partitions on my F: drive, both of which had an OS installed. I deleted one partition but I can't seem to figure out how to merge that unallocated space with the other partition. My OS on C: is XP and the OS on F: is Win 7, (D: is the partition I deleted).

Anyone know how I can do this?

Well I can't seem to find an ISO anywhere in the zip file I downloaded. None of the launchers work either.

Is there an easier way to install this?

Yeah, you will have to use a 3rd party program. The windows partition utility doesnt have the ability to do it.
