My problem is, I've accidentally created an f partition on a 40 gig hard drive and it is taking up all of my left over space (i.e. ~35gigs).
I want to remove that partition and format E so that it takes over the rest of the space.
My question is, is it possible?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

doing this will prevent you from ever booting the MS bios without re-formatting the drive to the original partition table.

So, are you saying that the f partition is now stored in the kernel's partition table?
That would seem rather strange as to my understanding, there was no f partition until this morning when I told xeniumos to format f.
Also, if I cannot delete the f partition, is there any program that would let me reallocate the space from f to e?
 I don't know if this makes a difference (it most likely doesn't) but this is an upgraded drive.

yes, on hacked bioses (ie: X2, evox), the partition table in the kernel/bios supports partitions 6 and 7 (F: and G:) but C: and E: remain like they were. this is why the retail bios can still read C: and E: when the chip is disabled. if you change the size of E:, the retail bios will no longer be able to read it correctly since it's not where it's supposed to be.

it was still there but since it wasn't formatted yet, you couldn't put stuff on it.

like i said above, XBpartitioner can do this.
i highly recommend against changing the size of E: and putting F: instead but if you still want to do it, go ahead.

Just wanted to let you know that I installed a .67 xcecuter bios, reformatted F and copied all of my emulators, games, etc. over leaving UDATA, TDATA, CACHE on E.
Everything is in tip-top shape now, and my other problem was that I had disabled the f drive in avalaunch, but I renabled it and all is well.
Thank you again for all of your help.
