No, you need to be able to boot the machine off the old drive and leave it in so that the machine stays running.

If that doesn't work for you for whatever reason, my next step would be to connect the new drive externally and format it that way. But you'll need a tool like this. Any good computer shop should sell these for about $20.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
