I'm not sure what your goal is but a boot disk with gparted or fdisk would allow you to remove a partition.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

I suspect what someone has suggested is to use the recovery partition.

With a lot of new pc's laptops or desktops, there is a separate partition you can recover the main partition.

As you boot up, WITHOUT the Acer disks in, you might see a message about getting to the recovery partition, F1 or something. Go to the E machines support page to see which key it is.

If, there is no recovery partition for some reason, you will need a set of recovery disks for the E machine, they will completely erase the hard drive & take it back to what it was originally.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

when you bought the computer you had a choice to make recovery disks. have you got those disks,if you have then insert disk 1 in your cd drive and restart your computer,then follow the instructions.

ps make sure your cd drive is the first bootable drive, i think it is key F8 or F12

Use the disk from the same manufacturer or recovery partition BUT choose 'Start Up Repair' if possible so you will not loose your data, or if not then you want to do a 'Factory Restore' to return the system back to the same as it was shipped from the factory. You need to make sure that your system is set to boot from the DVD drive BEFORE the hard drive in your BIOS boot order as mentioned above.
If you cannot make this work, you may need to check your hardware such as your memory and your hard drive (just the 2 most common problems) or bring it to a technician or a friend who has more experience with solving these problems.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
