Hi,


It is not recommended to delete any of those Recovery, EFI system partitions. They are necessary for proper working of the Windows OS.

Recovery (E:) OEM partition can be removed after creating HP recovery USB using HP Recovery Manager :

Then you can use any of these or disk management itself to merge last 2 unallocated partitions and assign drive letter:

I notice you have an ESD ISO file in your DVD drive, so is it your plan to install Win10, and that is why you need the additional space in "C"?

 

I've this is true, then let me know because I've done this numerous times and will pass along some hints.

Good Luck
