|If your only hard drive has been wiped by a program that writes zeros to every location, probably more than once, the drive will not boot. Some of these programs are for disposing of hard drives and they do not intend for them to be used again. What program was used? IF it is still possible to use the drive and you were using it as a second hard drive then Disk Manager would be your best bet to partition and format it. IF you are planning on using it as your system drive then you need to set your BIOS to boot from your CD/DVD drive first, then insert your Windows Install Disk, boot to that, Choose Custom when you get the choice, then Partition/Format, delete any existing partitions, create new partition(s) and format. Then install.|
IF Disk Manager or your Install Disk is not able to do this then the program has overwritten a part of the disk that is reserved for the disk to store partition and drive information. If this is the case, you may not be able to use the drive.
You can try the disk software offered by your disk manufacturer (make a bootable CD), boot to that and let it analyze the drive and see if you can partition/format it from there. If not then purchase a new one.
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
