View Full Version : formatting help

24th March 2006, 10:37 PM
Hello, I just installed FC5 yesterday, to check things out, but now am in a dilemma. I'm guessing, due to the format of the HDD, I cannot load a windows installer cd.. It inspects system config, and then goes black, stalling.

Is there a way that I can go in through FC5 and completely erase everything on the way out, or delete the partition?
I'm confused, and can't seem to find a way out.

It's possible to delete FC5, but first tell us what is on your hard drive(s). As root, do
/sbin/fdisk -l
and post the output .
That would be a gentle introduction to fdisk, which is probably the simplest tool to use in deleting partitions.
