Samsung HD753LJ (750GB) has funny partition?, Need to delete partition

I was trying to replace (clean install) my Win XP 64-bit with Win XP 32bit on my Samsung 753LJ (750GB), it has a 100GB boot partition and the leftover is for storage.
I have AHPI enabled and a floppy with the AHPI (x86) drivers.
The XP 32-bit could not seem to find the drivers on the floppy.
So I gave up and tried installing Vista 64 bit, it kept telling me there was a conflict with previous drivers, but the hard drive had been totally repartitioned on my second Win XP Pro
32-bit computer.

Anyway while partitioning/formatting the 753LJ with the Vista 64 install DVD, I noticed the weird partition.
Vista showed

Partition 0 0.0
Partition 0 99.67GB
Partition 1 600GB

So I'm trying to find out what the "Partition 0 0.0" is and how to get rid of it as I think it causing the problem.

  1. I would backup everything you need off the drive before going any further.
    During the windows installation can you delete the weird partition? Try deleting both the 0 partitions and remake it.
    Push comes to shove and you have everything backed up, wipe the drive and start over, but that is a last resort.

    Already tried deleting everything and reinstalling the partitions, no luck.
