Delete a partition

  mctrout 12:39 23 Nov 2008

Hi, How can I delete a partition on HDD, I have a new PC & it has Vista installed, I made the partition so I could install WinXP in so I could use some programs that won't open in Vista. The main one being s7raw, a program that i use for RAW files from my Fuji camera. When I try to install XP a message says I have a newer version of windows & I can't install it. Or else if anyone could please tell me how to reformat my hard drive so I could install Win XP would probably be better.
Thanks Mac

Download GParted and use it as a live CD on boot up. You can then delete or resize partions as you like.
