Folks, I'm ridding a Test PC of Server 2000 and would like to wipe the disk clean to allow for a fresh installation of a basic ME or XP OS. I only know Fdisk. Which doesn't seem to work, as it's in NTFS format. Is there another way to quickly erase the disk?

Maybe Partition Magic? ( it always messes up by disks anyway?!!!)

Erm, This is a work thing, and Licenses are required so ME is the choice. Besides, never had a prob with it.

Prob is Nothing seems to want to wipe Server 2000 of the disk?!

Having been in a similar situation I booted using the ME CD Rom and was given the option to delete a non fat32 partition?
