Is there an open source FDSK and FMBR program that I can use to fix this problem? Your support in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Personally I would:
- boot another distro from the USB or from the CD (knoppix, tinycorelinux, partedmagic?)
- start GPARTED from that distro of the USB/CD
- clean your partition (delete the files, reformat it..)
I have a samsung nc10 win7. I boot it from the USB or from the SD port (I did not made an HDD install). And Iam happy. So, perhaps you can make such "clean" boot from the USB or the SD port (with such clean boots, you can test different distro and choose later which one is the most appropriate for you).
