Hi wagcon. That just means that there is an extended partition on the drive and it must be deleted before removing the Primary partition.
First you will need to select option #3 and delete any logical drives within the extended partition. When those are gone you will need to use option #2 to delete the extended partition. After that you will be able to delete the primary partition and set a new one.
The question to ask is, do youknow what is on the extended partition and do you want to delete it? Were there additional drives on the computerother than the CD drive that had data on them? If so, deleting the extended partition will delete all of the programs and data on those drives.
If you are sure that everything must go then delete everything and create a single partition for the drive and you will be all set.
