I don't really understand the problem. But, to remove the master boot record simply do:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=446 count=1 root (under Linux) on said machine. Replace "/dev/sda/" with whatever your harddrive shows up as. It could be "/dev/hda" etc instead.

Make sure you type this exactly correctly. The "dd" command can very dangerous.

To remove the different partitions, use the "fdisk" command. This can also be very dangerous.

I accept no liability if these commands cause you problems, but these are the tools I use at least once a month to do what you are wishing to do.
