Can you boot to a USB with Ubuntu on it? If so, run Parted Magic from there.

Perhaps you could remake your USB? The surest method I have found is LiLi (Linux Live) USB creator, but unetbootin works well also (better maybe, but I have never had issues with LiLi). If you have a Windows Repair disc handy you could use that to get to command prompt and then use the diskpart utility (Diskpart >list disk>select disk X> clean/clean all)
