If you "really" re-format, your drives will be accessed on BIOS level first, so it should be no problem.
You probably have some problem with filter drivers, so you can check out thread related to missing drives in our common problems and solutions forum, too.

If you re-format, you usually boot from cd.

If your cd-rom is not present at BIOS level, it's NOT Daemon Tools fault. Check BIOS, cables 'n stuff.
