Not really the best idea. but if you are drilling into Cupboard (compressed board),I don't see the need for pilot holes first. Your biggest problem is actually getting the screws to start self tapping, where the hard melamine layer is hard to pierce... therefore, I would suggest the following.
Simply get one hinge, and a piece of wood to be used for the template... drive your screws into the hinge (on your piece of template wood). You need to ensure that the screws protrude all the way through to the other side of the template (thereby exposing their sharp points. Next add a cross piece to be your depth locator... this will then be your template where you can simply place the screws against the cupboard surface and bang a few times with a rubber mallet.
once your template screw points have pierced the hard surface of the cupboard it will be an easy task to fully screw in the screws...
The only problem, is that you will have to think of something smart with the height of each hinge in the cupboard, since i expect you will have different size doors, the vertical location of each hole may change???
