To enter BIOS, tap "Delete" whilst booting machine, but you can't delete a partition from within the bios.
You could always use Fdisk from a DOS boot disk but if I remember right this will wipe all the contents of the harddrive.
Paragon do a decent hard drive management utility with which you can add, remove or alter partitions without affecting any stored data, or so they claim, so tread with care.
Paragon can be found on this site at:

you dont need bios to erase a partition or even a bioot disk, if you goto system tools in windows start menu and disk management, you can format,create,delete or even stripe( thats how you make R.A.I.D hdd's) partitions from there its dead easy just right click the partition you wish to remove and delete it!!! and then stretch the other partition to take up whole hdd
