Need to wipe H/D and reinstall an OP system

I need to clean my H/D and reinstall Vista, had major problems with bootmgr and the system ended up corrupt, tried to fdisk and reformat, but cant get fdisk to work on H/D.

The thing is i tried deleting the partitions the H/D is meant to be 500gb it actually shows about 233 at the moment but when it was ok was showing around 456gb or there abouts, I'm happy to use one 456gb H/D at the moment just to get it working, when I try and boot it's coming up ''no operating system'' which is pretty obvious :-) Just need to reformat it then re-install Vista....

Any help or guidance would be very much appreciated...Many Thanks

Just start the vista installation, within the first few steps it will let you configure your disk. you can partition, formats, delete disks, etc

I usually just delete the disk or partitions that are there and choose next, the installation will automatically do the rest and proceed to install windows.

Hello,
Here is the fix for Bootmgr problem in Vista/7
Bootmgr Windows Vista/7
For windows XP : Try to fix your windows by selecting repair option.
  • Boot your computer with the Windows XP CD
  • At the first screen select R to repair
  • If you got a command prompt, just type on the command prompt "fixboot" then hit enter.
If those information did not help you with the bootmgr issue, then you might need to reinstall windows on your computer.

Hope this will help

I suspect your pc is not seeing the hard drive. I take it you are using a Sata drive but not installing the sata driver for the motherboard. Try installing on an IDE drive. If this works the above is correct.Good luck.

Went further in troubleshooting by removing the components one by one. Turned out that the soundblaster fx card needed to be reinstalled after a normal boot sequence was completed.
Remembering that Creative and vista have had problems in the past it was the first component removed and wala.
