I don't see why not. If you format it aren't you returning it to a "like new" condition anyway? Install away! tongue.gif

You're repartitioning and reformatting it...short of zeroing out the drive, you're doing everything possible to restore it to new condition.

NOTE: You do NOT have to zero out the drive....I was just making a point.
