Fdisk is no good for NTFS. you could use KillDisk to wipe the drive. You have to run it from a Floppy click here

You could make use of PTEDIT (16 bit version) or PTEDIT32 (32 bit version)from Symantec to double check though and if a hidden partition is found you can unhide it with the utility. They can both be found and downloaded from:

yes it is the only program that will work as altris hides the partition by marking the blocks unusable and their software is the only software that will unmark the blocks

I have found the file now i need to make a bootable cd -HOW do I do that?
