Format Hard Drive

If you format your official MS 250gb hard drive that is installed in your slim by using the format option in the GUI, does it  maintain what ever MS uses to determine that it is an official drive? Does it wipe out the needed paartition(s) that identify the drive and allow the older xbox games to run?

I realize all data, game saves, dlc, etc will be gone. Just need to make sure the slim knows how to format the official MS drive.
