I have made a bad install on my laptop with Windows 7 Home premium and now cant access my desktop or enter safe mode, I've tried the dell format option in repair centre but it did not work, I have the instillation disk and tried to reinstall it gave me 3 options the main C:Drive and other two one which I believe is reserved for the OS itself how would I go about deleting this part of the hard drive reserved for the OS.

 

Any help appreciated

Thanks

If you are re-installing, backup you data and format the hard drive first before starting the re-installation process.

Your C: partitition is the OS partition. The other two may be the System Reserved Partition at 100MB and the Dell Recovery Partition. See this guide and pay special attention to steps 9-11. This is where you would delete the partitions you want deleted.
