    It's a FAT16 partition; an old copy of FDISK will be able to delete it.

    That said, it's only 32 megabytes in size, on a 60 gigabyte hard drive. I wouldn't spend too much time trying to kill it.

    I cant get the laptop to read it as a drive with that partition there. Yes I created new partion, formatted, and assigned a letter.

    Set the partition you created as Active, as well.
