GPT Drive format

I have a GPT drive that came with a Macbook.  I want to use it in a Vista Machine.  When I try to format it using the Vista startup disk it won't let me.  I can delete the partition, but as long as it is a GPT drive it won't allow Vista to install.  How do I convert this drive back to normal use for Vista?

Could you hook it up to another vista computer with sp1 installed (which adds support for GPT)? There you should be able to reformat it to MBR.
