Default Delpart

So far I have d/l this to my hard drive and then to a floppy. Can someone please tell me how to use this after that? Do I just stick the floppy in a bootup and then the floppy does the rest?

I have never used this before and I wanted a step by step info on exactly how you have to do it. I don't have a PC i can try it on that is why i ask for this info.

tks

make a boot disk for windows so when you load up your comp it will allow you to enter dos commands at startup.

then follow these instructions:

Once your boot disk allows dos to load take it out insert the delpart floppy type delpart and it should come up with those screens shown above.

tks for that...I quess I am looking for the wrong thing.

What I am looking for is a program, not delpart, in which I can put floppy in at bootup with some program on it that will allow me to delete what's on the hard drive before the OS, thats on the HD, shows up on my desktop.

Can someone help me out with this please?

TIA

where you looking to format the hard drive? or just selected certain files? or just individual partitions?
