PROLIANT 800 - Hard Disk formatting

I use an old Proliant 800 (1999) as PC (former server of my company).
WIN NT is loaded.
Now, it is totally polluted by viruses in spite of Norton package.
I do not have any original CD for quick restoring or others.
I want to try to format hard disk as last chance before put through the window.
Is there somebody who can indicate me how to format the hard disk ?

thanks a lot

You can use erase utility
However you may require having Smart Start 5.5 CD or less (depend from Array Controller)
