Default 90 GB harddrive, deleted everything only 75 gb.

Title says it all. Ihave a 90 GB harddrive. I deleted everything (including windows) and I still have 15 GB of taken space. How would I remove this space?

if the pc and bios is detecting it right, the best bet is to simply reformat the drive to get rid of anything thats still on there hidden etc.

FDISK will do it for ya. Not sure what OS ya have, but if ya got XP ya can boot up from the CD and delete the disk and partitions from that. If ya do it this way then dont forget to change ya boot device order, so that CD boots first
