Check with the hard disk manufacturer. They usually have something you can download.
Also, I strongly advise against low level formatting. The hard drive manufacturers use some really expensive high quality equipment to low level format the drives. Your computer won't be able to map bad sectors nearly as well, so the drive may become unreliable.
Partition and High level format all you want, no problem there.
