Are you using a PC with a recovery partition or do you have the original Windows CD ?

If oyu have the origianl cd - place it in the CD drive and then re-boot your PC. Your PC should start up from the CD and beging the installation process - one of the installation routines is to FORMAT the HDD

Careful now....what do you want to do ?

a) Make a backup of your existing Windows installation to a backup drive by formatting a new drive and backing it up to the new drive ?

or

b) Wiping out your existing HD and starting over w/ a new installation of windows from a Windows DVD ?

or

c) Restoring your computer to its original factory condition via a system restore disc
