If you still have the original disk and don't have anything on the 
system to lose I would recommend rebuilding again.  When the install get 
to partition editor choose "use entire disk".  This should wipe 
*everything* on the disk, so /be sure this is what you want/.  Based on 
what you have described this would be the path of least resistance.  
There are other solutions so give more details on what you what to 
accomplish if the above won't work.
