    Hi there , When ever I re-install my windows ,

    I always start from scratch and prepare my drive. As I do it now , I insert the Windows XP

    pre- service pack cd and it has the option to completely delete partitions and format them from scratch. The Windows 7 copy I have is different and I don't like that silly menu they present.

    How can I make a bootable CD/DVD to first prepare a old drive and make partitions before even inserting the Windows & disk !

    Thanky

    Ralph

    It is. Download, burn and boot to the Live cd.

    "GParted Live is a small bootable GNU/Linux distribution for x86 based computers.
    It enables you to use all the features of the latest versions of the GParted application.

    GParted Live can be installed on CD, USB, PXE server, and Hard Disk then run on an x86 machine."
