    I tried to boot into the recovery partitions, but they didn't appear in the boot menu. So I guess that both are used for Win8. If I delete them, will they cause me any trouble??

    Only in the event you need to recover Windows 8.

    Did you get an actual DVD of Windows 8 when you upgraded from Windows 7?

    Are you using a gpt partition table or an mbr partition table? You can find this info in the disk management utility but I believe the gpt version of windows 8 installs a few extra partions. If it's an mbr partition then you should still be able to reinstall and delete all of the old partitions prior to installing so it only creates two partitions.

    Use the windows backup utility to make a system image an a recover cd. then you can delete the recovery partition.
