  1. I'd get GParted, burn it to a disk and then boot to it.
    Its a partition creating program.
    From it you should be able to wipe the HD.
    Then just install Windows as usual
  2. If you have the Windows 7 installation CD then there is no problem as you can format and delete partitions from it.. If you do not have the Windows 7 installation CD then you would have to use a third party utility such as Hiren’s CD. (I assume you have a back up copy of your installation)
