There are to partitions on that SDCard.

Windows assigns a drive letter to each (even if it doesn't understand the filesystem format).

You cannot unless you low level reformat the card and destroy the data on the card.

OP wants to overwrite the contents and install Lakka.

For that, you'd use etcher to write your image file to the boot partition. The other will be automatically destroyed and when it's done, you'll have two partitions again, but this time with a new OS installed.
