Default Deleting NTFS Partitions

Is there any way other then using a winXP install disk to remove NTFS partitions on a hard drive?

Here is the deal. My winXP PRo crashed and wouldn't boot up. So I thought I would reformat the drive and reinstall XP. But when when I put in my XP install disk and it looked at my NTFS partition it too crashed.

So I can't use my XP install disk to reformat my partition. So I tried FDISk to get rid of the partition but it doesn't even see the partition when I try to remove a non-dos partition.

So, Does anyone know of anything that I can use to delete all of my partitions. Both Dos and non-Dos??

It should work fine with FDISK. Make sure large harddisk support is enabled.

You could try Partition Magic or search download.com for a free partition tool.
