how do I delete the MDE partition on a system that the drive is NOT encrypted

We had some database issue and we  now have 6 computers that show up in EPO but do not have an encryption key.  I used the EETech boot cd and I can see the data on the hard drive so it is not encrypted but it won't boot past the MDE login and fails the user login or challenge/response code.


I noticed on other machines that we have decrypted with the EETech tool that the last step is to remove that drive partition.  How can I remove that partition and get back to booting directly to the c drive without rebuilding the system?


Thank you for your help,
