Default A software to delete the reserved partition by Win 7

A notebook HDD: WD Scorpio 60GB SATA 6400rpm OEM.

Once was tried to install Win7 on this HDD but failed.
A Win7 reserved partition was thus left on it.

Now the HDD is taken out of its original notebook and put into a desktop for a WIPE by EaseUS Partition Master and it is partitioned a C and a D. The Win7 reserved partition seems to be disappeared after the wiping. But it is not. Still on there. And it appears during the process of Win XP installation. And shows up as partition E in the newly installed notebook.

Not sure whether it is caused by the reserved Win7 on the HDD, the newly installed XP OS does not start normally, doesn't start sometimes, or starts with Windows' WELCOME other times omitting all the other procedures.

What I want to do is to delete the Win7 reserved partition and re-install XP. But I don't know how or a program to do the job. Please help.

Thanks.

Default win 7

Perhaps you need to format your had drive and start again , you could use gparted or similar , then you would have a blank hard drive ready for a fresh install .
