    Depends on how big the hole is.....if it's pretty small then use a small diameter drill first and then progress to a bigger one.
    Are you going to use a core drill or something?

    How big is the pilot hole? you could just hammer in a wood plug which would allow new hole to be drilled or fill the pilot hole and then drill.
