Is there any program I can use to wipe my XP partition. I want one that is compatible with Vista because i can only use Vista current;y cause my XP is screwed up and my recovery cds are also messed up so I just want to wipe the harddrive clean.

I do not understand what you are trying to do. It seems you already have vista installed on your computer. It is also unlikely that microsoft has changed disk management much from XP. You should be able to go into disk management in Vista and either format the partition or delete the partition and then repartition and format the drive. If you do not have vista on your computer you can wait until you buy the OS and then while installing do the same thing.

I have this thing called Winternals and i booted into the ERD Commander which is from it. I ran adisk wipe in it to wipe the C drive, and I cancelled it at about 60% cause it was taking too long. So i reboot and my comuter says "Error Booting Operating System." And i rele need help on fixing this. The weird thing is that i have two os's and it still says that. I DONT HAVE MY RECOVERY CD'S.But i will be getting them soon. Any help before i get them is greatly appreciated.
