    fdisk problems.

    I am trying to wipe out a Compaq HD the has a Primary DOS partition and a Extended DOS partition.

    I quess Compaq saves info for restore on the extended drive.

    I have deleted both partitions gone into "Display partitions" and it says all is gone.

    Then I restart go to fdisk, check "Display partitions" and the partitions are there again. I have wiped them out three or 4 times now.

    Is there an order I must delete the partitions in? And even if there is, why do they show up again when they say there's no partitions?

    Really confused
