    You need to boot into a different system in order to reformat the drive. You need to boot into ANYTHING else using a CD (your Win7 install media) or something like a Linux live CD (like Ubuntu). Either one should give you drive tools like FDisk to wipe and reassign partitions. Obviously only do this if you do not want any of the original data from the drive. You did make a backup, right?

    For further help, please post in the proper forum section.

    My first post and just wanted to say hi and that I'm happy to be here! I've always wanted to airbrush since I was a little kid (don't ever forget your childhood dreams)! I finally got one and I'm hoping to knock out some good stuff soon!

    Hi Modders,

    I joined specifically because I'm interested in briefcase computers. Actually I don't have time to build 'em so I'm looking for a reliable modder who has done briefcase stuff and might want to do more.

    Unlike most briefcase PCs, ours can and should use laptop guts instead of desktop mobos and power supplies. Basically take a new 15" or 17" laptop, remove everything from the case, mount it well in a secure aluminum briefcase with screen inside the lid. How hard can that be?!

    Briefcase modders who can meet deadlines with quality work, be in touch!

    Is this for a one off system or a repeatable unit?

    Seems like a fun place to be! Hey everyone, first time poster, long time lurker. There's a lot of creative stuff on this site, and it boggles my mind how some of you guys can pull this stuff off... Personally, I don't think I've ever set enough time aside to finish anything you guys have. Maybe if I hang around enough, I'll pick up some good habits and stop leaving my projects half-finished...
