Using linux live CD to remove old windows installation files
While fixing a problem previously, i re-installed windows several times. However since parititons are not labeled properly during the installation process, i accidentally installed windows on the wrong partition, and possibily 2 partitions.
I can see SOME of the old installation files(program files folder for example) on one of the partitions, but despite being an administrator and tinkering with file permissions, i cannot seem to give myself the authorization to remove the folder.
So a friend suggested to use boot into linux where permissions wont be a problem and delete away the old files.
Did some searching, made a damn small linux live CD. Booted into it fine, then went into file manager and realised that i could only see the files that were on the CD.
And i really dont want to install linux on "a seperate partition" as DSL is telling me it needs to do, just to remove the old windows installation files.
Does anyone have any suggestions here? Is there some other distro i can make a live CD out of to do it?
