You want to replace the entire HDD with a DOS partition rather than a Linux partition?  Boot from a DOS floppy which has FDISK on it, and use that to delete your existing partition and create a DOS partition.
- Verify in  bios boot order : a,c ...
- Make a (dos) bootable disk and copy  utility fdisk and format.
- Boot with this disk. With fdisk, delete all no dos partition.

Reboot ... ( it's better )
Now you have a blank harddisk

-Create new a new primary DOS partition

Reboot ...

- Format your new partition with this command : format c: /s
