Best Answer

Yes. This is known as "formatting" the drive. If you don't have a DOS-based disk management utility, you can quickly do this by booting to a Windows installation CD - most provide an option to format the drive and assign partitions before you install the operating system, and you can simply format the drive and cancel the install.
