Can't Format Ex-c Drive

Re-installed Windows to switch my C and D drive, which sort of worked. Now, I would like to FORMAT the non-bootable drive, but I get the error :

System partition is not allowed to be formatted.

In diskmgmt.msc I see that that drive is listed having "System" as a feature. But I nowhere see an option how to get rid of this. Actually, formatting would be the way to do that. That disk has 2 additional partitions (system created, not be me), but there's no options to perform on these either.

How do I get passed this issue ?

I also had an issue trying to format, where he refused to start formatting because he stated the label given was not correct, while it was. I just changed that, then could start format, but just to get the above issue.
