How will I be able to delete the partition from the boot? It wont let me do it. The only thing I can do is to reinstall Windows. Even then when i do that on C it doesnt delete all the files there, it just installs another copy of windows.

I dont think the XP cd makes you set the amount of data on the partitions.

Would it also be better to buy a new hardrive and replace mines?

what are you actually doing? you can alway delete it from boot.
use powermax in my signature to delete it instead. it's simpler

I'll try the file. The only problem is that I dont have any floppy discs or CD-R/RW with me. I will go buy it at the store later on today though. any more alternatives while I wait?
