I just bought a brand new HP G72 laptop. It came with Linux SUSE installed on it and with its hard drive split in 4 partitions.

After many trials and errors using the DOS command prompt I was able to format one of the partitions to NTFS (a small 10GBone) and now I have Windows 7 installed and residing on it.
The rest of the partitions did not allow me to format them under DOS.

Is there a way to format the other three UDF partitons to NTFS under Windows 7?
Windows Explorer does not see the UDF partitions.
However, the Windows Disk Manager does see them.
Problem is that it cannot do anything to them - it cannot format them, it cannot even show the info for those partitions. It just sees that they are there and that's it.

So, how to turn those UDF Linux SUSE partitions in Windows-friendly NTFS partitions?

Can you not even delete the partitions in Disk Managment?

^ Yes, I was able to delete them. Things look good now. At least partition-wise.
