I personally haven't seen one (I haven't looked either). A simpler way to do it is just get a Windows installation disk, boot to the CD, and there should be an option to delete partitions and format it there.

If you don't have a Windows installation CD this is another option you might want to try. Get a SATA to USB 2.0 Adapter, take the hard drive you're trying to wipe out of the computer, plug it into the sata adapter and then plug that into another computer that has windows, go into device manager and format it from there.

Edit: If you do decide to go with the second option, be extremely careful to not drop/push on the cover when it's plugged in
(it will ruin it).

Also: here is one from NewEgg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The computer locks up when I try to use a Windows disc. Its a laptop so I'm trying to avoid taking the hdd out. If it was a desktop PC there would be no question. Thanks for the link and reply I will definitely be picking one of those up.
