The recovery DVD wipes all partitions from the drive and sets things up again to factory spec. That sounds like what you want.

Do you have an external DVD drive to use for the restore?

The Google search bar at the top of the screen is really useful - it helped me dig this thread up in short order.

Moved this to the Mini Ubuntu forum in hopes that folks in the know will see it there and be able to give you a hand.
