The best way to clean a disk free of data is to use fdisk. Click on start>run>type in cmd in the box. This will bring you to the DOS prompt type in fdisk. Then say yes to all the questions.
In order to reinstalll you need to change your BIOs to be able to start with your CD ROM instead of your hard disk. Each manufacturer is different on how to get there. When you start your computer look for a line saying press F something to get to setup. Once in set upp find you boot structure and change it to start with the CD ROM first. If you have any questions let me know.

    when you get to c:\document....type cd:\ this will take you to the c:\ prompt. Then you can use the fdisk.
