Default Formatting hard drive and install Windows

I have a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista and I hate it, I've been having problems with it and the other day it crashed and windows won't start. It comes up with an error saying a file is corrupt. I tried running the Toshiba recovery disks but it doesn't work. If I format the hard drive, will the recovery disks still work?

OR

Once I format it, can I buy Windows 7 and install it with no problems?

Wow... 0 posts?

If you don't mind upgrading your OS, Windows 7 might be a fairly decent option.
