Looking for partition manager program

Hello everyone I am lookin for partion manager that will create me a bootable cd not a floppy cause I dont have one.

So I can delete all my partions and create new once.

Windows 7 cant do that cause I got OEM reserved partion and some dynamic partions that I cant even delete.

If someone knows how or have a tool to do so tell me.

I need it to make a fresh windows install and also put ubuntu that requires me create new pation and I cant cuase of the damn dynamic drives.

Check your HDD manufacturer web site. they should have a program package to
format the disk to "factory" setting.

edit- Sorry about that, not a Linus user. Forgot about Gparted which I have used.

Gparted is what I use and recommend. It's free (obviously) and it's a bootable CD and it's worked for any OS that I have ever used it against. I use it quite a bit in the virtual world too increasing and shrinking VM drives.
