Well if you are going to format the whole Hard drive then you can use the your original installer to delete the hidden partition then make a new one. But be aware that it'll lose it's data once you've delete it and made a new partition.

I think the answer is no you cannot , I do not usually answer

post about " pirate software " but in this case it would not

matter is the DVD was genuine , the key you have on the

case of your machine refers to your OEM pre installed copy

of vista , you can however make a reinstall copy from the

partition and then delete the , usually drive d: partition ,

How to do this can be found in your manual .
