I Installed windows on a new ssd. I have a 1 TB WD Blue HDD that I installed Windows on before. It has two partitions, one is 814 GB and other is 117 GB. The old system partition (Which I formatted already in windows Setup) is not DELETING
The "Delete Partition" option is greyed out.

What do I do to delete this partition? I really want that extra space added to my main partition

Then use Gparted to remove the one partition you are having trouble with and then expand the other one to use all the space,

You really should sort out a backup of your valuable data before doing ANYTHING with that HDD.
I removed that partition and it caused the system to not boot anymore. It was probably because the boot files were stored there, Anyway, I copied the boot files to the C drive with CMD and BOOM! It works.
