http://www.irongeek....to-wipe-a-drive

there is some great information on wiping your harddrive
ive wiped 2 harddrives using boot and nuke
on 2 different occasions

you open the the zip file and copy it to cd
put it in your cd-rom make sure your able to boot from cd-rom
and boot and nuke will detect your harddrive
follow the instructions
on a 40 gig harddrive it took about 1 hour
but it depends on your harddrive it may take longer
if it doesnt detect your harddrive leave the cd in and restart your computer

listen to the video and it will help you understand the program more better
should you choose to do it this. Just remember it will wipe out your harddrive...zero it out so to speak...GOOD LUCK
and if you do experience problems D-BAN has a help forum
myself i did not have any problems

How did you fix the Invalid Partition Table problem? Does the system boot with no CD in the drive now?

Also, don't understand what you mean about recovery CD and update CD. Are you trying to reinstall XP now?
