Last week, me and my aunt decided to but Linux on her Laptop. So I went to her house and shrunk the size on her harddrive (C:\) by 50gb and I put a Ubuntu DVD in her computer and booted it. We installed it using the emty space (the memory I shrinked) and installed. After about 4 hours of trying to get the internet on it, we decided that it wouldn't of been worth it so we restarted and booted into Vista. We went into "Disk Managment" (were we shunk the memory) and deleted the partition. When we restarted, I'd forgotten that when we installed Linux, that it changed the bootloader to GRUB. We put in the OS disk that came with the laptop and installed, but, it wouldn't wipe the harddrive, but install it on one partition.
So I was wondering if anyone knows how to wipe the harddirve so we can put Vista on the whole harddrive and not a partition that has 50gb less?
