How to delete a OEM partition in Windows 7

See: http://jaredheinrichs.com/how-to-delete-oem-partition.html

If you get the error:

Virtual Disk Service Error:
The operation is not supported by the object.

 

Make sure you’re disk is not a dynamic disk.
In mine case the disk was a dynamic disk en I converted it back to a basic disk, by using diskpart:
select disk 0
convert basic

 

After converting the disk back to a basic disk I followed the steps on http://jaredheinrichs.com/how-to-delete-oem-partition.html

    That makes no sense though because you can’t convert to basic unless the disk is empty and if it’s empty, you’re not trying to delete any partitions.
