Help deleting Service partition

I'm running XP and need to delete 5.5GB SERVICE001 partition. I already made all the Recovery disks. Also, I'm not really sure if OEM keycode for OS needs to be backed up and how do I go about it? Or should I assume since I made Recovery disk those contain it already? Than, how do I copy it back after hidden partition is deleted? I’m pretty sure if keycode is not present, MS will not do any auto updates since OS will not be authorized.

Nevertheless, I need to gain back those 5GB and need your help how to go about deleting that partition. I searched for FDISK.exe and it not on hard drive (XP, SP3). Please let me know since I do not want to do complete reinstall of OS with full hdd reformat. Thanks!
