    O shaped thing? I can't tell what you're referring to. If you delete all the partitions there will be *NOTHING* left on your HD. You will then needa use a bootable Windows / Recovery CD to try and install the OS. The Recovery CD should create a new partition and copy the files, unless it's like mine and it uses a secret partition on the disk, which you've probably deleted...

    Next time you should pay attention to what you're doing. Maybe actually looking at the screen before you decide to start pounding random keys and clicks would be a good idea...?
