Engr. Ogbon which operating systems do U want to load on the hard drive? Or is it that U just need to format only, and what file system do U want to have on the formatted disk?

Formating a hard drive isn't difficult. Slot in a cd/dvd microsoft Os and restart the pc. Get into the setup by pressing the 'delete' key. Go on to advanced settings and change booting preference from IDE watever (which is the hard drive) to cd/dvd. Once you do this, save your changes and the system will restart.

The system will then try to find a booting file from the CD/DVD you've inserted. If you inserted the Windows Os cd, just wait and follow the instructions on your screen.

It will guide you to formatting the hard drive and installing windows on that drive. Just be patient, make sure you read everything before pressing any keys.

Please format with NTFS and not a quick format. Its that easy. If any problems, find someone who will help you physically or take it to the Otigba boys at computer village that is if you reside in lagos.
