You can use the Gparted CD: http://gparted.org/index.php

There are format tools in Hiren's Boot CD too: http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd

Please do backup your data on the hard drive before you format the drive. It's your risk and responsibility for the data on your drive. Be careful of which drive or partition you are trying to format.

Format option will also be available using a Windows operating system CD/DVD, if you have one.

Default format hd

So what are you going to install on the HD or perhaps may I ask why you are formating it ?

Anupam,

Many thanks for the information! Worked great, and my desktop is now back up and running beautifully.
