Windows 7: Need to format Windows 7 disk

Need to format Windows 7 disk

I have a Western Digital sata HDD with Windows 7 RC installed on it. I need to format it, an put XP on it so I can use the Windows 7 upgrade disk as soon as it comes out. I tried DBAN and it would not do it. Is there a program out there that will let me format this hard drive?

XP, Seven, 2008R2

Well I'm still not 100% certain that RC will not qualify for the upgrade. It is only my guess that it will not.

If you happen to need XP installed you could boot from the XP install disc and use the procedure during install to format the hard drive that way.
