Hi tripolinero.

If you need to, try dban.

(Be aware that it will wipe your hard drive clean.)


You should be able to install the OS of your choice, provided you are

using an install disk, and not a recovery disk.

If you are willing to wipe your drive entirely, get a gparted iso file and burn it to a cd. once you do, boot from the cd and delete all partitions on the disk and make the whole thing a ntfs filesystem. Then you should be able to use recovery cds fine
