Need to wipe H/D and reinstall an OP system

\015 I need to clean my H/D and reinstall Vista, had major problems with bootmgr and the system ended up corrupt, tried to fdisk and reformat, but cant get fdisk to work on H/D.\015\012\015\012The thing is i tried deleting the partitions the H/D is meant to be 500gb it actually shows about 233 at the moment but when it was ok was showing around 456gb or there abouts, I'm happy to use one 456gb H/D at the moment just to get it working, when I try and boot it's coming up ''no operating system'' which is pretty obvious :-) Just need to reformat it then re-install Vista....\015\012\015\012Any help or guidance would be very much appreciated...Many Thanks\015

Answers :

Just start the vista installation, within the first few steps it will let you configure your disk. you can partition, formats, delete disks, etc

I usually just delete the disk or partitions that are there and choose next, the installation will automatically do the rest and proceed to install windows.
