    Default vista reformat

    I want to reformat my Western Digital Caviar 750. It has Vista installed on it. Microsoft says you canít uninstall, you canít delete vista and you cannot reformat the hard drive. My goal is to have a clean WD 750 without an OS in the back ground. There has to be a way to get Vista off this hard drive.

    Western Digital Data Lifeguard will most certainly format from within Windows it as long as it is not the primary boot drive. You could also boot from a floppy/ISO and do it in MS-DOS even if it is the boot drive.
