Installing Hard Drive then Pro

    I have a computer with xp home with two hard drives. One 60 gb and one 40 gb. I wanted to install my xp pro but it will not let me delete the existing partrition, but I can on the smaller partrition.

    What do I do. I want to format everything and just start fresh. It has two partritions, one with the 60 and one with the 40, and a third partrion with 8mb I believe. How do I proceed here.

    see if it would let you do an upgrade from home to pro unless you want to start fresh than go to diskmanagement to be able to delete partitions

    I'm unaware of how to do that. Where is this diskmanagement. Is it in windows or is it a program I must get.
