Answers :

If you put a BootCD in the CD drive then turn the system on you should be able to format the HDD from the CD. Also, your new operating system disk should allow you to reformat the HDD. Just put the CD in and start the computer up again. Watch for a message to press the spacebar or any other key to boot from the CD.
