hard drive formatting

Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)

The hard drive on my Pavilion DV6660se laptop died a few months ago and I want to install a new compatible hard drive.

My question is, how does one go about formatting and partitioning the new drive? Is there a function key that I must press on my laptop in order to bring up a screen that will show us the options to follow?

If you have Recovery Disks or a Windows dvd you can boot from it.It will format the hdd before installing Windows.
