Where download HD Erase/Format software.

I'm running pure Ubuntu, and in the process of reinstalling windows 7. But, I have to be able to (from a live CD) change the HD format to NTFS from the format that ubuntu set up.

Soo, I need software to download that will run off a cd that will allow me to erase and reformat a HD set up with ubuntu so I can reinstall Win7.
