How to remove partitions

Ok, Like I said in previous posts, I am a noob when it comes to OSs... So, if I am unable to get into my OS atm, how do I delete the partitions that are currently on my HD? Like Could I be able to do it from start up or boot menu? Please help...

Thanks in advance

Hi Kris

You can delete all partitions in setup. In drive options.
