Use Kill Disk from boot in your CD/DVD rom drive and start it, once it is done then you can reboot with your Windows, Linux, etc... and partition and install.
This program keeps anything that might be still on the HDD from your last OS, from still being on there that could cause problems and slow down your system.
This program is a must if you re-partition or format often. because really formatting and re-partitioning only gets rid of the MBR and a few other things....it doesnt write 0's to each sector and cluster like it should. Kill Disk does.
