    If you are troubled by the fact that there is not enough unpartitioned space you must select the partitions and delete them one by one (pressing 'd' the highlighted partition is deleted) until you have no partitioned space. Since your computer is a Compaq it very probably has a restore partition, you can boot from there pressing a key (It is 'f11' in many compaqs) during the first splash screen, I recommend you reinstall from this partition and unistall all the shovelware that cames with it, you won't have to worry about drivers or licenses later.

Reformat partition hard drive


To return your HD to the factory settings do a full system recovery using the recovery disks (CD or DVDs) you made when you first had the computer. This will return the whole computer to its as-shipped state: you will lose all your data and any software that you have installed. This will retain/re-install the original partition structure on your hard disk. To do this process you may also use the recovery partition on the hard disk.

To completely reformat the hard disk, in which case you will lose everything on it
press the start button at the bottom left of screen,
R-click on computer, and select manage. The computer management window will open. From the left pane click on disk management under 'storage'. A new pane will open, with information on the different disks in your computer. Select the disk on which the partition to be formatted is located. R-click on the partition to be formatted, and choose format, and ten work through the format wizard. (see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-format-hard-disk-partition#create-format-hard-disk-partition=windows-7)
When you R-click on the partition other options will appear will appear as well as format, choose the appropriate option to create a new partition, merge, etc, By successively working your working your way through the partitions you may format/merge some while retaining others.

How to reformat my laptop


  1. If you have the recovery cd, you can just pop-in the CD, select the reformat option and the installation process will continue automatically. Some laptop might have a special partition in the drive contains the operating system, drivers, etc. in case you want to reformat your laptop without the CD.
  2. Step 2 If you don't have the recovery CD, you usually can request one from the manufacturer. Otherwise, if you want to do a clean install, make sure you download all the drivers for your laptop, this may includes: motherboard, chipset, graphic card, sound card, modem, network card. Once you do that, put in the OS CD and start installing.
  3. Step 3 If you decided to do a clean install without the recovery CD, it would be best to create partition on your harddrive first, so you can have dedicated partition for operating system and backup. The next time you want to reformat your harddrive, you can just reformat that particular partition ex. C:\
  4. Step 4 After the reformatting process finished and you have installed a new clean OS. Install drivers one by one and restart when it's required. Try to do it in order from basic function -> secondary ex. motherboard, chipset, graphic, sound, modem, networking, etc.
  5. Step 5 Install back all programs that you might need. If you already backup the installation programs or have the installation CDs handy, you can do this pretty fast.
  6. Step 6 Rearrange the look and customize your new operating system, refer to the screenshot you have taken earlier before the reformatting process begin if you want to get the same look and feel.

I am using Windows XP I tried to reinstall the operating systems and now have it twice under the one partition, how do i delete one of the windows installation to reformat the hard drive?


Its going to be a case of re-installing XP again.

As you go through the process, XP asks you which partition you would like to install onto.

If there's already and installation on the partition, you have to delete that partition.

As you continue through the process, XP will has you if you what kind of file system do you want Fat32 or NFTS. Choose NFTS and go for the full format. That should clear the drive of previous installatiions

Hmmm...

Put your hard drive as a slave on another system and delete the desire partition with hard disk tool called Partition Magic or Power Quest. It is Microsoft utility.

This will solve your problem. I am doing same thing when I got problem in any hard drive. It is powerful tool.
