bootalble cd to delete partition

#1
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.
