Default I just finished writing 0's to the whole drive using the Data Lifeguard diagnostics f

Howdy everyone, I had trouble with my OS that I couldn't resolve, Windows XP Home. The hard drive is a 120 gig Western Digital SATA. I just finished writing 0's to the whole drive using the Data Lifeguard diagnostics floppy from WD and the drive is now raw. I was wondering what was best, if I should use the Data Lifeguard 11.0 floppy to format the disk or should I just use the windows XP setup CD.
Anyone thanks, DSH

I would use the Install disk to make sure it formats in the proper format
