I have the 320Gb HD which came in my Dell, but I have replaced it with a 1TB drive which has my Windows 7 OS on it. I'd like to reformat the 320, but there is a small partition which has the original Dell recovery on it.
I've tried to remove the partition in Disk Manager, but it is not offered as a choice.
I have also tried to install Windows 7 on this disk while the 1TB is disconnected, but get messages that I can't install Windows 7 on it.
Is there a free utility available online which will do a complete wipe of the HD and alow me to partition it anew? Or perhaps a way to do it with means currently available to me?
Thanks in advance.
