Format my whole Computer

by dandancoolman / January 14, 2010 8:38 AM PST

Hello, I have have a 500gb hard drive with windows7 and windows vista. There is no partitions. The windows 7 is corrupted and I don't use it so I want to take it off. But at the same time just formatting it and taking off every thing! its a brand new computer that I built. I have tried Putting in the windows vista setup disc, it boots right up to the widows vista background and a mouse. then nothing I let it run all night to see if it was just loading files but, nope. so is there any other way to format my hard drive with out the setup disc.

If I am not mistaken you can't have Vista and 7 on the same partition...
