Hello,

 

I have a computer that has been allowed remote access to by the user the person that the access was given to used this to enable syskey and created another partition on the drive then write protected it.  I have tried formating the drive and have tried using diskpart to remove the write protection to be able to delete the partition and what this person has done to this pc.  None of this has worked disk part will not show it as active so I cannot delete it I can see the partition but can not do anything to it.  If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them.

 

Thank you

Jon

G'day JonBruce, and Welcome to BC

 

I am assuming that you have the means of reinstalling the operating system here ?

Hello

 

Yes I have the means to do so but the partition that has been put on this hdd has been set to active and Windows Install will not see the drive.

Have a look at these utilities.

 

They both work in a rather deadly way...usually obliterating everything in their path

Ok tried Gparted did not work the partition is still there.  Ok tried another option I used a windows 8 disk to get a command prompt and attempted to format the partition that way.  Did not work due to it being write protected.
