I am looking for a way to eliminate an installation of Win2k that doesn't seem to be complete, but I am denied access to some parts because of preset permissions. It doesn't appear in Add/Remove Programs, and it was installed from an image. I am not sure where to go from here and could use some help. Thanks.
You can destroy the partition and start over. This can be done by starting the install process, then using the drive selection point to select and delete the partition where the corrupt W2K install is present. If that doesn't work, look for a tool called "delpart" which can delete any partition on a hard drive, you will need to boot into DOS to use it (booting from a floppy works fine). You could also use a third-party partitioning tool, such as Partition Magic, to delete the partition.
