Ive deleted all partitions - dont need any of the data.

I boot to C: prompt
from my xp disk - repair

fdisk not recog command - or words to that effect.
fdisk /r  
same error.

I remember doing this from a dos floppy disk years ago.  Anyway this PC doesnt have a floppy disk.

It had a virus that returned straight after a complete reinstall.

How do I restet the mbr ?  (without doing it from the new windows install Im going to do)
I want to do it now before I go to all that trouble.

Is there a boot disk somewhere that can help me?

thanks.
