Have you deleted the records in recycle bin? Make sure you have the backup if your instance is prod.





if the records are not getting deleted..


the alternative is,  FIRST establish look-up relationship, populate every record look-up value, once every record is populated with value in the lookup field, Convert the lookup field as MASTER-DETAIL.  Hope this will work for you.
